Those spaces “invaded” by music…

On my July reading queue is Toni Morrison’s Jazz, Haruki Murakami’s After Dark, and Denise Chávez’s The King and Queen of Comezón. I have made good progress on the first two and will be starting Comezón probably some time next weekend.

Morrison’s prose makes you feel the music and be right in the city as if the narrator is bringing you into the scene. Murakami’s novel is hard to put down. Not only the city at night reigns supreme, but certain difficult topics like human trafficking are dealt with in a masterful narration.

There’s music, there’s the city, there’s the being an actor/spectator amidst very intricate contradictions. Back to reading now. 🙂
