I have realized belatedly, that, having linked to the 2010 Global Reading Challenge, I ought to make a brief list of my intentions to fulfill it.
Doing the easy challenge as I am, it's going to be a pretty short list, and very subject to change:
I think this has got to be Roberto Bolaño's The Savage Detectives.
I think this will have to be Canadian rather than from the U.S., for the sake of expansion. Luckily, I think I've suddenly thought of just the one--Michel Basilières and his novel, Black Bird, recommended by Canadian crimewriter John McFetridge.
I decided to avoid England, Ireland and Scandinavia for this challenge, as I seem to do quite well finding books without prompting in these countries. It looks like the book is going to be French writer Fred Vargas' This Night's Foul Work, for the simple reason that I have already started to read it.
Not sure on this one. I'm leaning toward finally reading Peter Temple's Broken Shore.
I'm thinking of breaking outside of the crime box and reading Vikram Seth's Suitable Boy for this one.
I'm pretty sure I'll go for Deon Meyer's Dead Before Dying.
One book at a time, though. One book at a time.
