Here's what I'm reading atm:
1. Zadie Smith's NW. It is almost cinematic in its approach. She pans in and out of characters' inner lives as well as the things that make up suburban tedium and joy. I wonder if somebody less recognized might have been allowed to adopt this approach to writing. It's very good, to be sure. But I don't see editors/publishers encouraging newer voices to do what Zadie has done. Nonetheless, it's been an engaging, rewarding read.2. Samantha Fowler et al's Concepts of Biology. This is an introductory account of what it means to adopt a purely biological approach to life and life processes. I'm not sure abstract things such as "life" and "consciousness" can ever be adequately discussed solely from one perspective, but it is interesting to read about the physical sciences' approach.
