It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I finished The Night Flowers while I was away on vacation last week (I may or may not write more about that; that's going into my Substack though for sure). And I bought some things while I was away, including

Crooked Plow, by Itamar Vieira Junior, another story of tempestuous childhood and young adulthood, this time set in Brazil. I got it at Nantucket Bookworks and it just leapt out at me as something I hadn't heard of and sounded so intriguing. It opens with a pretty shocking act of violence and it's written in a way that is just totally propulsive. I love it!

Other than that, same-same audio and craft books.

What about you?
