black_guys_do_read

I'm a cinematographer born and raised in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands but now living and based in the Los Angeles area. See some of my work here: www.richardvialet.com. I read totally for pleasure and as a hobby but I love it. What books do I love? GOOD ONES. But I'm not really into non-fiction and I have a special thing for crime novels and hard-boiled pulp fiction. Some of my favorite books are Dennis Lehane's Mystic River and The Given Day; Stephen King's The Stand and The Green Mile; Scott Smith's A Simple Plan and The Ruins; I also love Devil In A Blue Dress, Clockers, and the A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series. Other authors I love are George Pelecanos, James M. Cain, Walter Mosley, David Goodis, Megan Abbott, and Chester Himes For some reason people always seem surprised when they find out I read so much. Not sure why...
