@neauoire fwiw i've been cooompleeetely devoured by "The Traitor Baru Cormorant" as of late. very similar in themes to the (excellent!) Teixcalaan duology, in that it questions and explores colonialism & forms of power and empire
other interesting reads this year:
* If On A Winter's Night A Traveller by Italo Calvino
* Homage to Catalonia — Orwell (#1 book this year, so far)
* Children of Time — Adrian Tchaikovsky
@neauoire oh yes definitely do that. it's such a rare book—a first-hand account of a pivotal historical moment *and* by an extremely talented and accomplished writer (& before they were accomplished!)
