I’m looking forward to reading all of them of course, but a few have a special role in upcoming challenges. I will highlight The Paris Journal in a post for Paris in July. I will highlight The a Good Suicides in a post for Spanish Lit Month; I’m especially looking forward to reading more about Hill’s detective Hector Salgada, who first appeared in The Summer of The Dead Toys which I recently finished. Finally, The Parrot seems like the perfect follow-up after enjoying Edward St. Aubyn’s Lost For Words. Both are satires for prestigious literary awards.
This is not to say I won’t relish the poetry in Antigone Poems, nor the tribute to Nelson Mandela’s life. Stay tuned for reviews on them all.
