It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


I'm reading a few things this Monday. On my nightstand is Life Itself, Roger Ebert's autobiography, which I'm enjoying despite his somewhat terse writing style. I'm listening to The Secret History of MI6, by Keith Jeffries, a history of the British international secret service. Fascinating stuff! Then I have two other books going, a memoir and a novel. The memoir is Rian Malan's searing My Traitor's Heart, examining race relations in South Africa through the examination of several murder cases. Malan is the scion of a historically important South African family as well as a dissident journalist who fled the country to avoid military service. The book is incredible. Finally I'm reading The Suitors, a galley from Other Press. It's a light novel about upper crust French people.
