A New Hampshire newcomer, Reagan has long used literature as a means of understanding and integrating herself into novel landscapes. Her favorite works lie in the realms of Russian and Soviet literature; narrative philosophy; and history, preferably compendious. She counts Thomas Bernhard’s The Loser and Dostoevksy’s Demons (among others on an ever-expanding roster) as particular favorites. Find her comparing translations of Swann’s Way or The Brothers Karamazov, and feel free to disturb her—she is incapable of turning down a recommendation.
