What to read next? Stuck in a ‘modern literary fiction’ funk, I’m reading, not dangerously, but chaotically. As I trip through crime classics, bouncing from political guides to memoirs, I’m discovering more books that feel like companions. These books come together to tell a story more completely, to compliment each other across time, genre or author. No book reviews or detailed plot summaries here – simply connections between great books that I hope will inspire your next good read.
