First thing: Best title evar!
You know it's a quote from Shakespeare? It's said by one of the witches in Macbeth: "By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes."

Currently reading The North Water by Ian McGuire. Longlisted for the 2016 Man Booker Prize.

Quote:
A nineteenth-century whaling ship sets sail for the Arctic with a killer aboard in this dark, sharp, and highly original tale that grips like a thriller.
It's a bit more seedy than I would have liked, but we'll see how it turns out. A very short novel.

Just finished The Hatred of Poetry by Ben Lerner - a clever book-length essay examining the seemingly perpetual dialectic between the condemnation and defense of poetry ... from the Plato to the present ... which includes a fascinating response to Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, and Marianne Moore, among other poets. Lerner obviously is well read and quite a wordsmith in prose, as well as poetry. Highly recommended.

I'm also mid-way through W.G. Sebald's The Rings of Saturn -- and still am not quite sure what I'm reading (memoir, travelogue, novel, rambling stream of consciousness?) - but it's beautifully written and translated (Michael Hulse) and I'm thoroughly enjoying the voyage ...

Just finished Unbroken after Boys in the Boat.

I was in the Olympic spirit!

Both were wonderful reads of Olympians overcoming adversity.

I didn't guess the murderer because a few things weren't clear to me. It would have helped if I was familiar with the role of Viola in Twelfth Night. Still, I don't think this was Carr's best effort. Interesting how even in 1934 "clue" was spelled "clew." Rated C- [2 stars].

Next is a library book, The Last Policeman by Ben H Winters. The description caught my interest.

What’s the point in solving murders if we’re all going to die soon, anyway?

Detective Hank Palace has faced this question ever since asteroid 2011GV1 hovered into view. There’s no chance left. No hope. Just six precious months until impact.
