Am making myself antsier by reading
1. The uncanny reader: stories from the shadows which is, well, far more fantoddy than The Weird, if not up there with Manguel's Black Water anthologies
2. 1Q84 in English, which is both time-travelly back to 2012 and much more anxiety provoking than the Japanese
3. My Antonia, which should not fantod me at all but does. Maybe it's just April being April, even if we're on an express train back to winter. Considerable snow expected on Monday, the day I have to be several different places, none of which I want to go to by transit.
Smith, White Teeth
Bechdel, Are You My Mother?
Soyinka, Ake, the years of childhood
Moorcock, The Warlord of the Air
Lavalle, The Ballad of Black Tom
Lee, The G-string Murders
D.O. Fagunwa, Forest of a Thousand Daemons
Laye, The Radiance of the King
Tutuola, My Life in the Bush of Ghosts
Humphreys, Shakespeare's Rebel
Tutuola, The Palm-wine Drinkard
Reading challenge-wise, that's one for Black Diaspora, one for Shakespeare, and two for African writers. If buying a book to read counts as 'reading what one has' and if the book contains two volumes, that might be four for African writers. And if library books count (I still don't think they do) then I've met my African challenge.
