Pickpick

This was excellent. It starts with a woman giving birth in a Beijing hospital on the night of the Tiananmen square massacre. Then it moves backwards and forwards from there, as we learn about the mother as a young woman and then her daughter brought up in the US. It's about families, and time, and physics, and grief, and things unsaid. Lovely writing.

The Dispossessed | Ursula K. LeGuin
post image

Trying to read a few books from my shelves before I buy anything new... let's see how long I can last. This one is proving a strong read so far - we've got communism, captilism, political manoeuvring, a bit of a love story, some physics. It's all going on. Only my second Le Guin (after The Lathe of Heaven, which I really liked).

Caroline2 Oh I‘ve had this on my shelf for yearssss. Be interesting to hear what you think of it. 👍 1w

I really really enjoyed this. So good. Great concept - a plane inexplicably duplicates - now there are two of every passenger. Great execution - it's not a straightforward narrative, but a really interestingly structured book, and very very readable. And a great start to the year's reading.

I opened up this book I got at a charity shop last year, and this paper fell out. A newspaper clipping from 1987. I assume someone clipped this to bring to a bookshop to get the book, and then popped it in the back. And there it's been ever since. So cool.

Orpheus Builds a Girl | Heather Parry
post image
Pickpick

I'm giving this a pick as it's well written and very atmospheric. I enjoyed the device of opposing narrators - Wilhelm, a doctor who wants to bring the object of his obsession back from the grave, and Gabriela, the sister of the girl on the receiving end of Wilhelm's 'affections'. However, it's very very grisly and I definitely skimmed bits for that reason. It's based on a true story, which makes it even grimmer. ⬇️

Oryx If you are in the mood for something Gothic and pitch black, you might give it a go. But make sure you have a strong stomach. 3mo
