Injury interrupts play

Hi all. I’ve got a broken finger on my left hand. Nothing serious, but it means typing is hard right now. My June update and maybe July will therefore be running a bit late – sometime mid or late August I’d guess.

June incidentally was a really strong reading month. I’ll do short write-ups of each of these once I can:

The Murder of Halland, Pia Juul

The Visitors, Jessi Jezewska Stevens

White Tears, Hari Kunzru

Heaven, Meiko Kawakami

The Way Inn, Will Wiles

The Abominable Man, Sjöwall & Wahlöö

The Legacy of Molly Southbourne, T. Thompson

Confusion, Stefan Zweig

Cursed Bunny, Bora Chung

At Freddie’s, Penelope Fitzgerald

Not a dud among them.

In the meantime, here’s a photo from Bologna, which we spent some time in during our July holiday:

  1. How frustrating for you. On the plus side, you’ll have mastered the art of one hand typing by the time the finger is healed.

  2. Ugh, so sorry to hear this, Max, and wishing you all the best for a very speedy recovery. Are you left-handed? Very awkward if so…

    Anyway, on a positive note, some great reading in June. At Freddie’s is brilliant, isn’t it? Another novel inspired by some of Fitzgerald’s experiences of the world. What a fascinating life she must have led!

  3. Sorry to hear about that Max – but at least you’ve got some good reading in. Love Stefan Zweig! Hope the finger heals soon!
