It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
I've been on a little bit of a It's Monday break while I finished up The Son, by Philipp Meyer, A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki and Swimming to Elba by Silvia Avallone. I had those three books going for about three weeks so for a while I didn't have much to say on Mondays. I also finished Tony Hawks' delightful Round Ireland with a Fridge, and Peter Ackroyd's fun London Under, a history of the city beneath the city.
the review on NPR basically sold me. It's very racy- like, from page one there is a lot of sex- and NPR described it as a mash-up of David Foster Wallace, Margaret Atwood and more, so that should give you a hint of what to expect. I'm also finding it to be breathtaking, addictive and really fun.
