What am I reading?
I try to balance reading for fun and reading for work, and often there are overlaps between these categories. This is a record of the books I’m reading, with some comments:
- Underway – The Outrun, by Amy Liptrot
- July 1, 2018 – Just finished the in-translation novel August, by Argentinian writer Romina Paula. I loved the Patagonian landscape, the 90s pop culture references, and the unsettling feelings of going ‘home’ after a long time away, and seeing these moments where life choices branch. An unconventional voice that resonated with me.
- June 19, 2018 – Migration Songs, the first book by Halifax (actually, Dartmouth) writer Anna Quon. Novel narration, and a rich family story, though the main plotline didn’t quite work, especially near the end.
