It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
I'm still in the thick of The Son, Philipp Meyer's future classic about the Comanche wars and Texas. I also started Swimming to Elba, a coming of age story by Silvia Avallone set in a gritty Italian town not far from the eponymous island. It was a finalist for the prestigious Strega Prize.
I also started Ruth Ozeki's dark and delightful A Tale for the Time Being, about two women, one in Japan and one in America, one of whom communicates with the other via her diary which washed up after the tsunami of 2011. It's a wonderful book and I can't wait to finish and tell you more.
On the audio front, I've started How the Irish Saved Civilization, by Thomas Cahill, which I'm enjoying also. I wanted to get in some extra Irish history before my trip in the fall. It's delightful!
