I finished The Maids by Junichiro Tanizaki, which took just a couple of days to read. And I decided to DNF the nonfiction read I had going at the gym- an upcoming collection of essays that just wasn't doing it for me at all. I haven't picked a new gym book yet but I will soon.
In the mean time,
I'm still on Eva Sleeps, by Francesca Melandri, which I expect to finish this week. I'm enjoying it more and more as we go.
My bedside book is Véra, by Stacy Schiff, her biography of Mrs. Vladimir Nabokov. I'm enjoying it so far. It's dense but interesting and I'm looking forward to continuing.
