August Reading

Great changes in my personal life are afoot, time is shorter than it has any right to be, and so this month I will not be talking about books I have read. Here’s a simple list instead, for my records.


Dorothy L. Sayers, Strong Poison, Have His Carcase, Busman’s Honeymoon

Samantha Shannon, The Bone Season

Rumer Godden, The River

Patrice Kindl, Keeping the Castle

Loretta Chase, Viscount Vagabond and The Devil’s Delilah

Various, Baker’s Dozen: The Elle Tranquebar Book of Short Stories

George Saunders, Fox 8

Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Herland

Rokeya Shekawat Hossein, Sultana’s Dream and Padmarag

Herge, Tintin in America, The Blue LotusTintin in Tibet

Ruth Ozeki, A Tale for the Time Being


I will be writing about some of these in the future, I hope. The Ozeki in particular deserves more space, it’s wonderful.
