    Warlight

    Warlight

    Michael Ondaatje's 2018 novel Warlight is the subject of this episode of The Slow Reader. It's a difficult novel to read, but is well worth the effort.


    Music in this episode is Labile Polvere by Mattia Vlad Morleo, from https://www.jamendo.com.


    The full review text will be online at https://www.noformatblog.ca in a few days.

    Heads!

    Heads!

    Saturday Night Ghost Club chapters 4-7

    Saturday Night Ghost Club chapters 4-7

    The wrap-up episode for The Saturday Night Ghost Club! A bit of a tweak in the format, without any specific summaries of the book. I answer some questions that I asked last episode, and set up the next book!
