Mini Update Sticky Post: December 4, 2019
Off my own shelves, I’m still reading Charles Palliser’s The Quincunx and I’ve just finished Linda Hogan’s Solar Storms (which was amazing) and I have just begun my first of Nina Bawden’s novels for adults, A Grain of Truth. (Great title.)
In borrowed-book news, Saeed Jones’ essay collection is engaging and lyrical. And on the advice of a reading friend, I’ve just started Alexandria Marzano-Lesnovich’s The Fact of a Body, which is unsettling and unputdownable.
And, looking ahead, I’m already thinking about my reading in 2020. And, looking back, in CanLit-prizelist season, I read all of the Giller-longlisted titles (of course you already know how much I loved Ian Williams’ Reproduction) and in November Naomi of Consumed by Ink and I hosted #MARM Margaret Atwood Reading Month.
Also, I’m still reading Mavis Gallant, one story at a time. (Which began anew on October 22nd: In Transit.) There are two full collections after this one: join in, if you wish.
How about you: what are you reading these days, and what are you looking forward to reading soon?
