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.

Hav, by Jan Morris. This edition has an introduction by Ursula K. Le Guin, which is what drew me to it. Amusing anecdote from that intro: due to Morris's more typical work as a travel writer, many people wanted to know how they could "book a cheap flight" to this enchanting city. Le Guin dryly observed that, due to many people's poor understanding of fiction, they did not realize that it is not the destination that is the problem, but the origin of the trip: "You couldn't get there, in fact, from London or Moscow, but from Ruritania, or Orsinia, or the Invisible Cities, it was simply a matter of finding the right train." What a loss, now that she is gone!

BTW, I am enjoying the book, apart from Le Guin's scintillating intro!
