Oh, also, I had a couchsurfer stay over last night - Su-Yee Lin. She won me over in her request by immediately mentioning that she likes Shirley Jackson, Karen Russell, Kelly Link, and Neil Gaiman. Hellooooooo potential book soul mate. And she WRITES THINGS. Right now she's working on a collection of short stories based on Chinese folklore that I really want to read. Here's on of her stories that she wrote in college that got published on Tor a few years back: Thirteen Steps in the Underworld. As self declared princess of the underworld, I really liked it.
THIS WEEK(S) I READ:
- The Natural Way of Things by Charlotte Wood
- Vertigo by Joanna Walsh
- Where We Go When All We Were Is Gone by Sequoia Nagamatsu (review this week)
