The weather is cooler and the nights are longer, so it’s time to muse about books to read this fall and winter. Here are three books that I plan to read in the coming months…
Daniel Alarcón: At Night We Walk in Circles – Daniel Alarcón is a prizewinning novelist with family roots in Peru. He lives in the SF Bay Area and is also Executive Producer of Radio Ambulante, a Spanish language narrative journalism podcast. At Night We Walk in Circles was a finalist for the 2014 PEN/Faulkner Award.
Cristina López Barrio: Tierra de brumas – Cristina López Barrio is a Spanish author. She has a background in Law. Her previous novels include a prizewinning young adult novel and two novels for adults. Tierra de brumas was just published last month and takes place in Galicia, northern Spain.
Javier Marías: Los enamoramientos – From Amazon: “Los enamoramientos, Marías’ latest work, is a reflection on the state of infatuation, considered as something positive and even redeeming to the extent of justifying all: the most noble and selfless actions but also the largest excess and abuses. It is also a novel on the impossibility of ever knowing the truth, not even our own.” Javier Marías is a Spanish writer. Read a great article about him here in the Paris Review.
And you? What do you have in the pile next to your bed??
