When I got to know Danny Gardner I was immediately happy to know him. Now I'm really happy to be reading his novel, A Negro and an Ofay. I'm not far in, but I'm loving it so far. I'm eager to get to the end and sing it's praises.
I'm also listening to Liane Moriarty's The Husband's Secret. I really enjoyed the TV adaptation of Big Little Lies and while this isn't quite as enthralling, there's something really delicious about stories that are simultaneously incredibly domestic (all the leads are groups of suburban moms) and so goddamn dark and noir.
Any number of authors more successful than I am have said if you don't read, you can't write. Here's to making some headway on the TBR, enjoying good stories, and still getting to call it "work."
