Last Week In Books: The Plague and the Struggle Continue

  • Heading back to a lighter note–the video above is an interesting list of books from and about Taiwan from world-traveling bloggers Books and Bao. While their take on the country as a whole is a little naïve in my opinion, the list is really good and I’ve added K-Ming Chang’s Bestiary to my TBR. [via Books and Bao]
  • Several authors share what they read to get them “through” the pandemic (Is it over? It is not! Slow down!). Charles Yu read socially indicting non-fiction, while Kiley Reid(Such A Fun Age) relied on Orwell’s Animal Farm. I don’t know what else I was expecting, exactly. [via Time]
  • Last link for today; speaking of the plague that is not yet over, Margaret Atwood is editing a Decameron-esque collaborative novel called Fourteen Days: An Unauthorized Gathering, about strangers telling stories on a New York rooftop during lockdown. Atwood’s been on my ‘meh’ list for a while, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little excited, since it gathers a really interesting collection of writers including Celeste Ng, Angie Cruz, Nafissa Thompson-Spires, and John Grisham(…?). [via The Guardian]

That’s it for this week, beautiful people. Read something good this weekend.
