Books finished in December:
(Warning: reviews are unpolished and quickly written.)
Tenth of December: Stories (2013) by George Saunders. Short stories. The most memorable one is The Semplica-Girl Diaries, a tragicomic story of a short-sighted couple making a mess of things also published in the New Yorker. Key ingredients of that story are the eponymous (human) Semplica-girls. Funny and serious. Recommended.
Ratings and previous books are in the library.
