A list of the best things I read in April.
My Brilliant Friend, Elena Ferrante. It is as good as everyone says it is.
On Immunity: An Inoculation, Eula Biss. Beautifully written meditation on the history and language of vaccines.
The Blue Flower, Penelope Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald is my latest lady novelist obsession.
The Diary of Virginia Woolf, vol. III (1925–1930). Her happiest, most productive years.
The Writer in the Garden, ed. Jane Garmey. Charming collection of essays, poems, and thoughts about gardening from talented writers.
Life & Times of Michael K, J.M. Coetzee. Darkly moving.
