Christopher Clark’s “Sleepwalkers,” about the “great powers” somnambulating (for whole nations, including the millions of their citizens who would die) into World War I.
Marilynne Robinson’s “Lila.”
Just finished Sarah Stark’s “Out There”...I love this character Jefferson Long Soldier, and his grandmother. I seriously recommend this book.
Also just finished Louise Penny’s “The Long Way Home,” with its interesting use of a “tenth Muse,” and the characters’ search for a personal muse.
