Last month, I only read books from Africa.
Inspired by the new Nobel laureate Abdulrazak Gurnah, a friend suggested to do an Africa Reading Month.
Last week I interviewed South African author Marita van der Vyver! You can watch the complete interview in this post.
This book was not really my cup of tea.
Last month, I read the two historical novels Het pauperparadijs by Suzanna Jansen and HhhH by Laurent Binet. Two very different books that I had very different expectations of as well.
Two years ago, I read Ulysses for the first time. Last semester, I did a course on this incredible book and I reread it.
As some of my readers might know, I love nineteenth-century French literature. So when Patricia Worth contacted me if I wanted to review her new translation of George Sand’s Spiridion, I was very excited. I have wanted to read something by Sand for quite some while now.
A new year and some new reading challenges! I have some cool new reading projects planned.
Max Havelaar is one of the big classics of Dutch literature, but was writer Multatuli really as noble as everybody thinks?
How do you handle the fact that you'll never be able to read everything you want to read?
