It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Last week I finished three books:
  • Varamo, by Cesar Aira, which I loved to bits and pieces,
  • Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling, and
  • The Baker's Daughter, by Sarah McCoy, which I enjoyed and which I think you will, too.
This week I'm still working on Alan Hollinghurst's The Swimming-Pool Library, a story about a wealthy gay man in 1980s London getting to know an older gentleman who wants the younger man to write his biography. In the mean time he's juggling lovers and loves. I also started The Sisters Brothers, by Patrick deWitt, which I'm loving. I want to spend all day with this hysterical gallows-humor Western but alas, I cannot. I love that it was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. So far it's delightful.
