I Dream Words was started as a space for me to articulate my ideas about the books on my candidacy exam list, and has turned into an homage to books, and to share them with anyone who cares to read them. Books. Reading. Words on a page. This is my obsession, a black and white love affair that has resulted in the pursuit of a PhD in Literature — and subsequently, a neverending lifetime of looking at books. I am currently a PhD candidate at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. I’m writing my dissertation on magical realism in contemporary US ethnic literature, and am enjoying the process way too much. There’s no turning back, but there are plenty of pages for me to turn, and I’ll write about them right here on this blog.
