Recent Reading: The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold|
Amy Tan's most recent novel was narrated by a character who dies at the beginning, too.
There's also a recent British novel I heard about wherein the afterlife looks awfully like the grimy industrial town in which the protagonist spent most of her life. Unfortunately, I don't know the author or the title, though I'd like to read it.
I'm reading "Casanova in Balzano" by Sandor Marai, a Hungarian author who was only really discovered after his death 1989. Very focussed, well-observed and funny. Full of questioning on how one lives one's life, whether one has made the right choices, and whether they were really choices to begin with.
Meanwhile, I got an excellent beta from KD and I'm cleaning up 23, to be posted soon.
