Book Blogger Hop: Voltaire's Calligrapher
Welcome to Book Blogger Hop! Visit other blogs by linking up to the Hop at Crazy for Books, weekly from Friday through Monday, blog hop other blogs in the Linky list, and answer the question of the week.
This week's question: What are you reading now and why?
I picked up a slim paperback that has been languishing on my shelf: Voltaire's Calligrapher: A Novel by Pablo De Santis, published Oct. 1, 2010. I see it as literary fiction, but it's described also as "steampunk mystery set in the time of Voltaire." (Booklist) Wish I had started it sooner!
The novel was sent to me by the publisher and I'm planning a review. The author is South American but this edition is published in English.
