Daylight Saving Reading

November 13, 2021

There is a melancholy that often descends when we turn back the clocks in November each year. It always affects my choice of reading material, a response to the seasonal transition. This week’s selection reflects the two sides of that change—sometimes it seems fitting to read something lonely and absorbing, and sometimes I search for a happy ending and levity amid the shortened days and early darkness. Here are five books from very different writers for you to choose from.

Happy reading,
