Jennifer Egan's A visit From the Goon Squad: Ambitious with as many different points of view as possible. Extras: Power Point Presentation. Figured I'd get North America out of the way first!
Apocalpse for Beginners is an interesting and different Canadian read. I read it in English, translated from the French by Lazer Lederhendler.
Just finished STILL MISSING from Chevy Stevens. Set on Vancouver Island (where the debut author also lives). Very good thriller.
If you love poetry, you will love this book, no prevarication, You Will Love This Book. If poetry was a joy, a love that you put aside as childish whimsy, this will re-introduce you to that love, will spark a curiosity, that will combust to no mere bonfire in your heart.
Sorry, I forgot to change the URL on my first post!
It´s sorted now, Michelle.
DANCE MACABRE: Violins, Violinists and Violence. Interesting mystery set in New York City. Would love to hear from readers who play or played the violin.
Alberto Manguel although born in Argentina, raised patially in Israel, now lives in Canada & claims to be Canadian, hence he's here
That wraps up North America for me. I already had two picked out for South America, so I chose to put Central America here.
Dorte, sorry, I forgot to add the title & country - it's The Case of the Substitute Face, USA.
Margaret, no one says you MUST - but I have added it now.
Galore is probably my favorite book of the year so far. It was amazing!
I agree with Cassandra. I just finished Galore and I absolutely loved it.
White Woman on a Green Bicycle is a wonderfully evocative tale of a woman brought to Trinidad and her life there.
For some reason I never reviewed the book I chose for this one, however I do talk about it ALL the time because I loved it so much, so I just linked to my blog!
David Foster Wallace described this book, as a book to give someone who is negative about the future of American fiction, going on to say that there are hip, funny writers and there are wise, moving and profound writers. Kalfus is all of these at once.
I'm noticing that some of my older links aren't working. Please delete #30. I've reposted the link. Thanks!
Two reviews: Bury Your Dead (Canada) and The Killer Angels (US).
I'm counting another unreviewed Canadian book, although I could also count my Where Are You Reading (50 States challenge) for the US.
