Books to Read While the Algae Grow in Your Fur, May 2017
Attention conservation notice: I have no taste.
- Karin Slaughter, Cop Town and The Kept Woman
- Mind candy mysteries. Cop Town is a historical mystery, set
in the distant and alien past of early 1970s Atlanta. The Kept
Woman is the latest thriller in Slaughter's long-running contemporary
series, and features some spectacularly bad parenting, even by her standards.
- Chris Hayes, A Colony in a Nation
- This is passionate and resonant, but it does make me want to see a really
detailed comparison of policing in black and poor white communities.
(I'd be very surprised if there wasn't a substantial difference, but how big?)
- Marie Brennan, Within the Sanctuary of Wings
- Mind candy: Conclusion to Brennan's excellent fantasy series of
pseudo-Victorian natural history. Many mysteries get resolved, in ways which
genuinely surprised me. (Previously.)
