Meet Your Boswellians: Terrail

This month's Featured Boswellian is our philosophy guru Terrail! Whether it's waxing poetic about who should play the angel in the Socrates/Darwin pair (see photo above) or geeking out over Malcolm Gladwell, Terrail is always having a good time (see cheekiness below). 

1. What do you love about working at Boswell Book Company? 

As a reader/writer of mostly nonfiction interests AND an English student, I feel right at home within this literary inner-circle of trust. It's cool to have the knowledge of and access to endless amounts of books--fiction included, which I plan to get more into to give my brain a break. The discounts, the Marquette game (in the suite), author events, etc. are okay too, I guess...

2. What’s your absolute most favorite of all the things in Boswell right now? 

The customers can be idiosycratic--very different than in other retail stores. Book-lovers are a special breed of people.

3. What’s your absolute most favorite of all the books ever? 

Haha, I like that this question purposefully poses something so impossible to do. Ah, The Catcher In the Rye.

4. What’s on your staff rec shelf?

Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes; Tao of Wu by RZA; 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene; and Decoded by Jay-Z

5. For which writer—living or dead—would you take a bullet?

Well, I have a weird tendency to like my authors stiff-and-rotten. Perhaps, I would take a bullet for someone of the Malcolm Gladwell persuasion in hopes of my posthumous writings building off of such a magnanimous act.

6. With which character can you most relate and why?

Franz Kafka's character in Metamorphosis, Gregor Samsa. He, for the most part, accepts change and appearance knowing that we aren't really in control of anything except for our reactive or proactive decisions.

7. Someone wrote your biography – what is the title?

The Erroneous Truth: Terrail's Life According to You

8. If you were a super hero/ine, what would be your name, and what’s your power?  

Luminous Fluxx! Superpower: the ability to maximize people's unique gifts!

9. Which band or artist would you drop everything to party with?

Easy, Tori Amos, in a heartbeat.

10. What’s your spirit animal?
11. Forget “you are what you eat.” We’re talking dranks—what beverage are you?
Whiskey and Sprite, cheers!
12. Now we’re talking…dreams. What’s yours?  

Wait, so life isn't a dream?!
