It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I had a busy reading week. I finished Ratlines, by Stuart Neville, finally! I also finished my first two short books of February- The Father and the Foreigner, by Giancarlo De Cataldo, and Comedy in a Minor Key by Hans Keilson. The Father and the Foreigner is a crime novel of sorts, but more about the bonds of parenthood. It was fascinating in its way. Comedy in a Minor Key is about a Dutch couple who hide a Jewish man during World War 2, then have to go into hiding themselves. It was wonderful.

Now I'm still working on Ian McDonald's The Dervish House, a not-short book set in near-future Istanbul, and I've started Alexander Papadiamantis's The Murderess, a novel set in rural Greece. I  only just started it so I can't say too much yet but I have a good feeling!
