It’s time for #6degrees. Start at the same place as other wonderful readers, add six books, and see where you end up.
I read two outstanding books at the end of last year that I did not write reviews for (I will) – The Weekend and Heimat by Nora Krug.
Heimat is a graphic memoir – I have very few graphic novels on my shelf and even fewer graphic memoirs. In fact, I have only one other – Rosalie Lightning by Tom Hart.
I haven’t read all of Rosalie Lightning yet because it is just so sad (note that it is about the death of the author’s child). Plus, in terms of grief-lit, I think I’m still recovering from The Bright Hour by Nina Riggs.
Some people think I read too much grief-lit. Perhaps, but I’m fascinated by the uniqueness of every grief experience. Caitlin Doughty’s From Here to Eternity examines the death rituals unique to different cultures.
My final link is on name alone – the James Jones classic, From Here to Eternity – I haven’t read it but have seen bits of the movie!

Next month (April 4, 2020), we’ll begin with Anna Funder’s ‘classic on tyranny and resistance’ – Stasiland.
