I finished Niccolo Ammaniti's devastating The Crossroads (also published as As God Commands) and I'm going to have to write a full review soon because it's an amazing book. But for now I'll just say he's quickly become one of my favorite authors in any language.
Then I picked up another book to read until I realized I'd actually read it about two years ago and forgotten everything about it. Oops!
So now I'm on to The Long Room, a galley I received as part of a Tin House Books program to promote its books to reviewers through ARCs. It's about an intelligence officer who falls for the subject of his surveillance activities. I'm enjoying it quite a bit. It comes out in November.
In non-fiction land I'm still on The Barbary Coast and probably have at least another week and change. I've been busy and sick and all kinds of things, so I haven't been to the gym much but I am still reading The Most Dangerous Book when I do get on a cross-trainer. And that's still a great book!
