I am enjoying quietly reading…

(I’ve shared that reading fiction is one of my favorite quiet activities.)

Beauty is a Wound is the English language debut by Indonesian writer, Eka Kurniawan. My book group selected this novel for this coming month’s discussion.  The blurb piqued our interest. What we know is that the story is epic in scope, set in Indonesia and is saturated in “magical realism.” How could we resist? We like to take chances.

To learn more about the author and this novel (as well as his previous novel) check out this write up in the NY Times Sunday Book Review from 2015.
