#14books14weeks2023 I was thinking about joining in , @Liz_M had such great picks ,got me motivated! I wanted a Virago and a NYRB book in my selections as well.Some have been on the #TBRMountain for a long time.
Oh my God, I finished a book! One of the downsides of writing is never having time to read anything but your own stupid manuscript, and one of the great joys of finishing a first draft is setting it aside and focusing on someone else's words for a change. Published (and set) during the middle of Russia's shadow war in eastern Ukraine, the story follows a beekeeper and resident of Donbas turned nomad as he searches for peace and tranquility.
“Just after lunch,on 1 May 1956, the tolling of the treble bell of St Mary‘s church summoned Oxford University‘s dons to the Old Bodleian Library,a site of male learning and clerical endeavor for four centuries, now, suddenly and inexplicably, said to be under threat from ‘the women‘.”
