Sunday Salon- Settling in for the Winter
I've been trying to decide if I want to do any challenges in addition to the Europa Challenge and the Complete Booker Challenge, and I think I probably won't, but it's still early in the year. This past week I completed one book for each of those challenges: the wonderful The Sense of an Ending, by Julian Barnes, for the Booker Challenge, and the staggering blistering Moffie for the Europa Challenge. Moffie should be required reading for anyone doing LGBT books- or just for anyone. It knocked my socks off!
This week? Well, after I finish Atocha Station I'm thinking about dipping into American Dervish, a 2012 release out now about Pakistani family in the United States. It looks really, really good to me and I'm looking forward to it. I'd also like to try out Tyrant Memory, a newish book by Horacio Castellanos Moya and published by the wonderful New Directions press.
What are you reading this week? Any 2012 releases you're starting now, or waiting on your nightstand or bookshelf?
