    Presidential tastes

    Fiona McCann

    According to his official facebook page, Barack Obama is a fan of Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bob Dylan, Steve Wonder, Johann Sebastian Bach’s cello suites and The Fugees.  His favourite movies are Casablanca, the first two Godfathers, Lawrence of Arabia and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, while Toni Morrison’s Song of Solomon, Herman Melville’s Moby Dick,  Shakespeare’s Tragedies, Parting the Waters by Taylor Branch, Marilynne Robinson’s Gilead, Self Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson, the Bible and Lincoln’s Collected Writings are listed as his favourite books. So what, if anything, does all of this tell us about the US president-elect?
