January (second week) 2018 Reads

The "Deal Me In" story this week was a one about a new mother.  The three novels I read were all really good, the noir was good, and the non-fiction on translation theory was excellent.

Card: 6 of Hearts
Story: Bravery by Charles Baxter (in The best American short stories, 2013)

The Strays by Emily Bitto

Trieste by Daša Drndić ; translated from the Croatian by

from my shelves...

Montreal Noir edited by John McFetridge and Jacques Filippi
Most of the ten anthologies I have read from the Akashic Noir series have been good, but this one is one of my favorites. The stories feature a variety of protagonists and situations. Who expects to find, among the usual suspects, guys who hunt coyotes for sport in the burbs of Montreal?
