This past week I reviewed WOW: A Handbook for Living by Ken Ohashi, and will review The Writing on My Forehead: A Novel by Nafisa Haji for TLS Book Tours on March 23.
I have three new books on my list to read, The Solitude of Prime Numbers, by Paolo Giordano,
The Nicholas Floch Affair by Jean-Francois Parot,
and Venom by Joan Brady,all books from Europe, two in translation from Italian and French. Venom and The Nicholas Floch Affair are suspense/mystery novels. The Solitude of Prime Numbers is a work of literary fiction.
I am currently reading a library borrow, The Godfather of Katmandu by John Burdett, detective fiction set in Bangkok, Thailand and featuring half-American, half-Thai police detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep. I'm learning a lot about Buddhism and Nepal as well as Bangkok. Burdett is the third Western novelist I have read who sets his crime fiction in the Southeast Asian capital.
Because of a new full-time job plus traveling for family get-togethers, (I'm writing this from Toronto), that was all I was able to do!
What did you do last week?
