When Ren Ishida‘s older sister Keiko is murdered, he leaves Tokyo to tie up her affairs & discovers how little he knew about his beloved sister. Not quite a who-done-it, this book was unexpected & while not really for me, it‘s a lovely novel.

Zoli: A Novel | Colum McCann
post image
Pickpick

This historical novel took me a few weeks to finish, but the extra time allowed me to really savor McCann‘s writing.

Zoli is the story of a Romani woman from Slovakia whose songs and poems bring her immense fame and heartbreak. This rich, haunting novel begins in the 1930s and traces Zoli‘s life through several decades and multiple perspectives.

I LOVED this biography of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the first woman president of Liberia. It gives a great overview of Liberia‘s history, from its founding by formerly enslaved Americans to the 14-year-long civil war and Ebola epidemic. I knew a bit about Liberia through work (one of the nonprofits I write for has grantees there), but this book covers so much important history through the lens of a fascinating public figure.

The Absent One | Jussi Adler-Olsen

Mehso-so

Finished this detective novel yesterday. It‘s the second in Adler-Olsen‘s Department Q series, and set in Copenhagen. I loved the first one (The Keeper of Lost Causes) and this one was a bit of a disappointment. The pacing was slow throughout, and I never love the kind of detective novel where you know who the villain is from the start.

Really enjoyed this one on audio — it‘s a mix of travel memoir and research on the merits of solitude. Set in #Paris, #Istanbul, #Florence, and #Manhattan.

I just downloaded all 9 free e- books on offer from Amazon (probably only US) in celebration of World Book Day! I don't think I have even read all of the books I got last year in the same promotion! #worldbookday #amazon #kindle #ebooks #freebooks #neverendingtbr #translatedbooks #kindledeals #readtheworld

A charming blend of fiction and nonfiction that follows the author as she tries to force herself to write a book while living alone on the Falkland Islands. Great audiobook narration, too.
