Getting By

September 9, 2023

Characters, real and imagined, deal with the hands they were dealt—whether it is surviving the contemporary pandemic, hunger in the 1600s, or the American Depression of the ’30s. There is also a new story collection by a Scottish prize-winning author of a dozen previous books, and a surprising experience at a Japanese library.

Happy reading,
