I don't know about you, but it's been hard for me to focus on fiction, what with the American democracy coming to a fiery and horrible end. Anyway, this is what I've been reading.
The Mighty Franks by Michael Frank
This is an incredibly fascinating memoir about crazy Hollywood families.
Less by Andrew Sean Greer
This is my new absolute favorite of Andy’s books. Preorder it now.
His Bloody Project by Graeme Macrae Burnet
This book is so freakin’ good.
The Darkroom by Susan Faludi
This book will blow your fucking mind. Seriously. Buy it NOW.
The Animators by Kayla Rae Whitaker
A book about art and artists. I love it.
The Gustav Sonata by Rose Tremain
Tremain is a remarkably accomplished writer and here she’s on the top of her game.
Underground Airlines by Ben H. Winters
How much do you think it sucks to publish this the same year that Colson publishes Underground Railroad? But this book is really great! Read it!
The Portable Veblen by Elizabeth McKenzie
Good book, but I fucking hate squirrels.
Little Sister by Barbara Gowdy
This book is weird and wonderful. Like all of Gowdy's work, it will subtly change how you look at the everyday.
The Photographer's Wife by Suzanne Joinson
A little slow, but lovely.
Lincoln at the Bardo by George Saunders
I struggled with this because of the placement of the dialogue tags after the sections. But then I got the audiobook and now I understand that it’s a MASTERPIECE. It will win the Pulitzer for sure.
