Recent Books — Ungentlemanly Warfare, AJ Fikry, March, Amatka
- Churchill’s Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare by Giles Milton. Deep dive into the British efforts to combat the Nazis with sabotage, resistance, even terrorism. Well done.
- The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin. I picked this up at random on Independent Bookstore Day at Elliott Bay Bookstore. Fantastic hopeful book about loss and love. Great characters. Very glad I took the chance — what I really like about independent bookstores is their “staff picks” area.
- March by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, Nate Powell. Great graphic novel about the life of John Lewis.
- Amatka by Karen Tidbeck. Another Independent Bookstore Day purchase. A town whose very existence is defined and controlled by language, and what happens as some of the residents start to rebel against control and language. A little trippy but I enjoy tales like these.
