Books you have on your nightstand: Hilary Mantel's books 'Wolf Hall' and 'Bring Up the Bodies' about Thomas Cromwell and the Tudors really blow my mind how someone mixes factual events with imagination to reveal what is really essential or true. Historical novels or TV series like 'Mad Men' or 'The Wire' allows me to empathize with people or cultures who may have lived long before my time or outside of my own world. This connection to the past through fact and imagination allows me to feel love for people it would be impossible to meet otherwise.
