These are the books I read in 2017:

Anything is Possible by Elizabeth Strout
incredible story of the stories behind My Name is Lucy Barton  –  what all went on in that hometown of hers – to the people Lucy and her mother gossip about? –  interwoven stories, each standalone in a way but far more meaningful if you get the gist of their placement.

Also –  Emotional Sobriety by Grapevine Inc.
Stories of recovery on a higher level  –

Dinner with Buddha by Roland Merullo
rather extreme – contrived –


big chunk of 4321 by Paul Auster –  (will finish)
