Winifred Holtby - The Crowded Street. Novel about women's roles in early 20th century Britain - not bad, but I prefer her South Riding
Alasdair Gray - Ten Tales Tall and True. The edition is lovely, although I'm not sure I'm loving the actual stories
Madeline Miller - The Song of Achilles. Retelling of The Iliad in psychological realist style, for a book club. Not bad, but I'm not loving it
Iris Murdoch - Collected Letters. Good bedside reading, though pretty fans-only
Robert Burton - The Anatomy Of Melancholy. Another bedside book. I'm not convinced it'll be worth reading all the way through, though bits of it are fascinating
Raymond Queneau - The Blue Flowers (reread in French)
Arthur Rimbaud - A Season In Hell (reread in French). My French is only good enough for me to go slowly and consult the English translations frequently, but I still feel like it's helping me practice and it's nice to revisit these books.
Charles Dickens - Our Mutual Friend. Good, but I preferred Bleak House
Laurent Binet - The Seventh Function Of Language. A sort-of goofy conspiracy thriller about the death of Roland Barthes, featuring most of the big names in Theory as characters. Good fun but never amounts to more - Foucault's Pendulum by Umberto Eco (who himself appears in Binet's book) is a better version of this sort of thing.
Edmund de Waal - The Hare With Amber Eyes. Didn't like this.
Cristina Rivera Garza - The Iliac Crest. Surreal Mexican novel, pretty good.
CLR James - Minty Alley. His book about the sport of cricket and colonialism, Beyond A Boundary, is great. This novel is okay.
Ling Ma - Severance. A novel about a pandemic, which I hadn't even remembered when I started reading it. The pandemic itself never really becomes more than a metaphor for mid-20s late capitalist malaise. If you're going to read a contemporary novel about pandemics I'd recommend Station Eleven instead.
