|If I Were a Cat|
Right now I'm doing a reread, I Know This Much to be True by Willie Lamb, such a great book, enjoying it more this time than the last time I read it.
Also reading The Sisters: The Saga of the Mitford Family by Mary S. Lovell. What a truly messed up family.
And This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald and I'm not enjoying it at all, probably won't finish it.
Prior to these I was reading The Last Samurai by Helen deWitt and it was incredible. How to or not to, raise a genius child. He knows many things, but not who his father is/was and that's the mystery he has to solve. This book uses Akira Kurosawa's The Seven Samurai as a backdrop, but this is not a book about Japan, samurai or movies, at least not in a linear way. Absolutely fascinating.
