KP's New Year Picks 2020
In 2020 Fitzcarraldo have published An Apartment on Uranus by Paul B Preciado. The book writes of an imaginary home where people are not judged by their race, sexuality or gender. One is free. It is a hopeful book that draws on vast ideas and delivers them exceptionally. At the till I read the opening pages of Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson and look forward to reading it all in one gulp. The story follows a slow moving woman as she takes care of two children who combust when agitated. In a lesser writer's hand it could have been a stinker. It is not, it is good fun reading. Lastly, Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982 by Cho Nam-joo, translated by Jamie Chang, describes the despair of an ordinary young woman in contemporary Korea.
