Self found a couple of books to add to her reading list while perusing the Books section of the July 23 – July 24 Wall Street Journal:
- Your Friend Forever, A. Lincoln, by Charles B. Strozier (Columbia)
- The Castle of Kings, by Oliver Potzsch (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) — historical fiction, set in 1524 Germany
- Abahn Sabana David, by Marguerite Duras (Open Letter) — “minimal, dream-like setting” and narration that has “the bluntness of stage directions.” Self adores Duras.
- The Brotherhood of the Wheel, by R. S. Belcher (Tor) — Resourceful residents of a small town use a HEXapp — an actual HEXapp! LOL LOL — to show the most recent sightings of the local spectre!
- Richard Cohen, literary critic and Tolstoy expert, shares his favorite British crime novels: The Cask, by Freeman Wills Crofts; Tragedy at Law, by Cyril Hare; Reputation for a Song, by Edward Grierson; The Shortest Way to Hades, by Sarah Caudwell
- Brazillionaires, by Alex Cuadros (Spiegel & Grau) — nonfiction by a journalist
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
