Con's truly amazing mum is in recovery mode at home and I have been trying to compile a reading list for her with a focus on fiction. Here it is.
Please remember that I have not had time for non-academic reading since Christmas break (and before that, the summer) so if you are perturbed and think I am missing something that is trending right now and am therefore woefully out of touch with the current lit scene... you are correct.
FOR THOSE OF US WHO GET TO READ WHAT THEY WANT WHEN THEY WANT
Half-Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan
Nikolski by Nicolas Dickner
Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson
The Solitude of Prime Numbers by Paolo Giordano
Still Alice by Lisa Genova
Good to a Fault by Marina Endicott
Jade Peony by Wayson Choy
And Elaine has already read this but if you have not, please do so: Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls.
