Mini Update Sticky Post: April 1,2021

Debut? Keisha Bush’s No Heaven for Good Boys. Short stories? Yiyun Li’s A Thousand Years of Good Prayers. In comics? Michael Nicholl Yahgulanaas’ Carpe Fin: A Haida Manga. Dipping into: Ai Weiwei’s Human Flow. A recent favourite? Saleema Nawaz’s Songs for the End of the World. MustReadEverything authors? Thomas King’s new mystery, Obsidian. New-to-me? Nikita Lalwani’s Gifted. And about to start Véronique Tadjo’s In the Company of Men (Trans. John Cullen).

So many books to talk about! Including what’s currently in my bookbag, notebook, stacks and reading log.

And the new chronological short story project: Alistair MacLeod’s short fiction: schedule here, sixteen months, usually one story a month. Just started!

How about you: what are you reading these days, and what are you looking forward to reading soon?
