What book do you return most often to? 

Jane Austen's novels--all of them, alas, so few.

 Anca Vlasopolos has published a detective novel, a memoir, various short stories, over 200 poems, the poetry collections Penguins in a Warming World and Walking Toward Solstice, and the non-fiction novel The New Bedford Samurai.
She was born in 1948 in Bucharest, Rumania. Her father, a political prisoner of the Communist regime in Rumania, died when Anca was eight. After a sojourn in Paris and Brussels, at fourteen she immigrated to the United States with her mother, a prominent Rumanian intellectual and a survivor of Auschwitz. Anca is Professor Emerita of Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan, where she taught English and Comparative Literature for 39 years. She is married to Anthony Ambrogio, a writer and editor. They have two grown daughters, who are making their own way in the world. You can read one’s blog, about beasts in a populous city.


And my blog tour continues at Elizabeth Spann Craig's blog. WORKING MY WAY TO A NOVEL 
And at WOMEN OF MYSTERY where I talk about a sense of place.
