I’ve decided to take a little time off from reviewing books to focus on a few unfinished projects. I’ll still be reading voraciously and thinking about how each book changes my outlook.
To start the month of April, I am looking forward to reading:
Autumn by Ali Smith (I listened to this on the plane, but I need to see it in print – so many nuances, I want to digest Smith’s words slowly).
Possession by A.S. Byatt (my friendly librarian gave me the movie version and now I am anxious to see how it compares to the novel by this Man Booker winner).
Ties by Domenico Starnone, translated from the Italian by Jhumpa Lahiri (I just started reading this and am already under Lahiri’s spell of luxurious language).
Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller (a pick of one of my book discussion groups).
The Atomic Weight of Love by Elizabeth Church (another book club pick).
The Stars Are Fire by Anita Shreve (her newest novel to be published April 18th.
I hope to restart the discussion of books with you here again next month.
