I've been reading a lot since I finished my Master's! YAY!
So many books are complete garbage, I might add. But not this one:
Haruki Murakami's After the Quake: This tiny, tiny book is full of delicious stories that are strange but not too strange. They all wrap around the theme of the earthquake, which is sometimes the point of the story and sometimes just an aside.
Sue Miller's The World Below was pretty good - it wasn't stupendous and it included some old people sex which isn't always what you're dying to read but I think good for everyone to think about. It sheds some light on the sanatoriums people were sent to when they were expected of having TB. Interestin.
