We spent most of this terrible year trying to escape reality through fiction. It only sort of worked. Join us for a look back on the books we read in 2016 and our goals for 2017.
Zadie Smith: Bougie or just British? We touch on that and more as we discuss Smith’s latest novel, “Swing Time.”
We picked Kaitlyn Greenidge’s “We Love You, Charlie Freeman” thinking it would a fun absurd piece of literature. Instead, we got a tense, tragic story of a family torn apart by a monkey.
As you may have learned, we only barely ever know what we’re reading.
When we picked Jacqueline Woodson’s “Another Brooklyn,” we though we we’re getting a light summer read. Boy, were we wrong. This book is quick, but it’s chock full of substance.
We read Natalie Baszile’s “Queen Sugar” and had no idea what the f@#k was going on.
