The Reading Life is a multicultural
book blog, committed to Literary Globalism
- Jennifer Cody Epstein - USA - author of The Painter from Shanghai and Wunderland
- Alison MacLeod - Canada -author of Tenderness- featured numerous times
- David Narrett - USA - author of Adventurism and Empire The Struggle for Mastery in the Louisiana-Florida Borderlands, 1762-1803 - initial appearance
- Madeline Martin - USA - author of The Last Book Store in London - First appearance
- Kerri Maher - USA - author of The Paris Bookseller -first appearance
- Judithe Little - USA - author of The Channel Sisters - first appearance
Five of The six authors are Americans, one is Candian, all are living, one male author is featured. All but one were featured for the first time.
This is the smallest number of authors ever featured in the Month end report.
All of featured works have my strong endorsement.
In December I read two books upon which I did not post
- Hiding man : a biography of Donald Barthelme / Tracy Daugherty. - 2009- a brilliant literary biography
- The Reading List - A Novel by Sara Adams. 2021. A disappointment
