My favorite author. He wrote some of the bravest and deepest explorations into all matters human that have ever been committed to paper. A champion of the under-dog. Always skeptical of the rich and powerful. A deep reserve of kindness for the oppressed and mountains of scorn to heap on the oppressors. I can revisit his books time and time again only to find new insights, laughs and wonder. A huge imagination of the first order. Charles Dickens is my Home-Boy!
