Just finished two quite different books:
Swimming Home by Deborah Levy - a Man Booker Prize nominee - a fascinating, intricately plotted literary novel - that begs to be re-read to understand what the heck just happened. Employing multiple viewpoints/descriptions of the same events - the reader is taken for quite a ride, as two marriages are challenged on a holiday from hell in the countryside. Levy writes sparely but beautifully.
A Corpse in the Koryo by James Church - an Inspector O mystery - set in North Korea - with so many layers of claustrophobic paranoia, insane bureaucratic regulations, and human misery - an intriguing peek into the land cut off from Western view across the DMZ - and the challenges faced by a civilian detective solving crimes committed by the military - while your rooms are being searched daily.
Both books highly recommended.
