Connie Ogle of the Miami Herald on the Most Notable Books of 2019
The Book Reviewer on the Literary Life with Mitchell Kaplan
“I don’t remember a time that I didn’t read. There’s a legend in my family which I like to believe is true. It probably is not. But my mother, to this day, will tell you that they would put me in a crib at six-months-old with a stack of books so they could sleep late, and they could hear me turning the pages. So I like to think of myself as a prodigy … I’m sure this story is true.” This week, Mitchell Kaplan and Miami Herald‘s Connie Ogle discuss many of their most memorable books of 2019.
Some of the books discussed in this episode…
Sally Rooney, Normal People
Kevin Barry, Last Boat to Tangier
Isabella Hammad, The Parisian
Marlon James, Black Leopard, Red Wolf
