Books I’m Reading 26

Steering the Craft: A 21st-century Guide to Sailing the Sea of Story by Ursula K. Le Guin. Le Guin provides good writing tips and examples for POV differences.

Es un decir (translates to ‘It’s a saying’) by Jenn Diaz, a writer from Spain. The story is from the point of view of a young girl named Mariela who finds her father murdered on her birthday and who tries to find the answers as to why, but no one is giving them. She enters the adult world with blinders on and must learn to deal with the silence and, then, the truth. This is a great story and is similar to the novel I’m querying about father and son.

The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountain: A tale of travel and darkness with pictures of all kinds by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Eddie Campbell. This is a full color illustrated book of a story Gaiman wrote a while ago. The story follows two men on a journey to a specific cave in the mountains of Scotland where neither man trusts each other. The ending is quite interesting.

The Islands Project: Poems for Sappho by Eloise Klein Healy. This poetry collection delves into the theme of Sappho as it relates to the poet’s life. If you haven’t heard of Sappho, it’s best to do a little research before reading this.
