Oooh, that one's tough. Ilisidi could well be my favourite, but I'm also strangely drawn to Geigi as well.

Geigi is a wonderful character as well.

Just finished "If On A Winter's Night A Traveller," by Italo Calvino and "The Conversations," by César Aira.


Still working on a wonderfully rich novel titled "The Mad Patagonian," by someone calling himself 'Javier Pedro Zabala.'

Not a fan I'm afraid. Glad to have read such a seminal SF book but it was a slog.

Now I'm reading Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata (tr. Ginny Tapley Takemori). It's short and so far intriguing.

Back into poetry over the last couple of days, with a couple of examples that share a certain directness.

I started on Christina Rosetti's The Goblin Market and Other Poems for the book club here, and the title poem's imagery was so unsubtle that even a complete poetry novice like me couldn't miss the meaning.

Then I went back to The Taste of Words: An Introduction to Urdu Poetry, and read another VERY direct and unsubtle work "To the Sons of the East India Company". The poet claimed he wrote this in just 15 minutes!

I read this last year. It was a fascinating dive into conbini culture in Japan. I speak a little Japanese and the culture and religion of the region are of great interest to me. I read a good bit of Japanese fiction, and this was one of the most jarring ones I've read. Jarring in a good way. I'll be interested to see what you think.

I am currently reading Hild by Nicola Griffith and listening to A Delicate Truth for the NLBC February read.
