Fifth DegreeMy review.
Where the Crawdads Sing, full of gritty outdoorsiness. Helena was raised off the grid after her father abducted her mother. Eventually, she chose a more conventional life but when her father escapes from prison she believes she is the only person who can find him. There is a movie coming soon.
So this month I traveled from Hollywood to New York and New England to Scotland to Ohio to Quebec and wound up in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, a place I would like to visit (for the hockey and the scenery) - lots of desperation at both ends. It’s really rare for this Anglophile to have just one book from the UK – I almost feel like replacing my third link but that would be cheating!
Have you read any of these? Did you play #6Degrees this month? You should!
Next month (September 4, 2021), Kate says we’ll start with 2021 Booker Prize nominee, Second Place by Rachel Cusk.
