I read two short books this week- Dinner, by Cesar Aira, which I can already tell you will be on my list of this year's best reads, and The Gun, by Fuminori Nakamura, which will be on some kind of list but I'm not sure what. And I finished A Fifty Year Silence, which is a perfectly solid memoir.
So I'm starting two new books this week.
Eva Sleeps, by Francesca Melandri, came out last year from Europa Editions. I can't tell you that much about it right now; I just read the first chapter. But I like it. More next week.
Food City continues to be interesting and educational, about the rise and fall of different food industries in New York City. It's fascinating to learn about all the brands that started here, and how the industries have changed. I'm reading about a city that isn't much like the city I know.
I haven't picked a new gym read but I'll let you know what it is next week! Hope you're having a great week in books and in life!
