It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
In the past couple of weeks I started and stopped a bunch of books, but I did manage to finish a couple- So Much For That Winter, by Dorthe Nors, for the Nordic Book Club, and Sweet Lamb of Heaven, by Lydia Millet, just for me. Both were edgy and off-the-beaten-path in their own way. So Much was comprised of two novellas each written in lists and having to do with romantic breakups. Sweet Lamb was about a woman hiding from her husband and accompanied by her small daughter. The woman, Anna, has contact with the supernatural and lives among a group of misfits in a Maine motel as she waits for the other shoe to drop. I enjoyed it but it's not going to be something for everyone.
