- Harry Potter and the Cursed Child -- I read the screenplay that opened in London last month. It's ok but I think I'd rather see than read it. Anything else I could say would be a spoiler.
- Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie -- Its insider-outsider perspective on the USA, the fact that the central character earns a living as a blogger, and the fascinating portrayal of life in Africa are great, though I found the ending a little forced. Lots of good things about food!
- Ostend: Stefan Zweig, Joseph Roth, and the Summer before the Dark by Volker Weidermann -- pretty much for aficionados of Austrian and German writers of the era between the two World Wars. I liked it, and learned about a few obscure writers I hadn't heard of before. The relationships among these writers were new to me.
I'm now reading two others. May not finish soon!
