I want to report on two books, one which I neglected to praise to the skies when I read it a few months ago, & one that I finished night before last.
The recently finished one was "Exit West", by an author lauded by Bjd: Mohsin Hamid. It's a lovely, unputdownable book, with a single magic realism conceit that is totally acceptable in the way it moves the book along by skipping what would have otherwise been details that would have pushed it in an entirely different direction. I feel the review here is a perfect summation: themillions.com/2017/12/a-year-in-reading-michael-david-lukas.html
