Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 11/10/21

It’s been a topsy-turvy week as I’ve been working remotely in different time zones. I’ve had to wake up very, very early! Here’s what I’m reading before I go to bed early…

The Swift and the Harrier by Minette Walters (available 2nd November) was a great surprise from Allen & Unwin. The novel is set during England’s Civil War in 1642, where Jayne Swift chooses to be neutral. But William Harrier, who seems to be around Jayne all the time, embraces the war. Who is he?

One Hundred Days by Alice Pung opens with 16-year-old Karuna getting pregnant. Her mother confines her to their tower flat to keep her safe and out of trouble. But it’s a battle between the two of them as the baby grows – who will call it Mum?

An Insider’s Plague Year by Peter Doherty is his response to the COVID-19 pandemic in its first year. He discusses how knowledge on the coronavirus was gathered and the response to it to control and manage the pandemic.
