New rule: You don’t know how to use a comma, we don’t read your book. It’s 2017. We’re not putting up with this shit no more.
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.
