Summer House with Swimming Pool is on my upcoming list as well – my first foray into Koch! I've also been seeing California around – will be interested to hear your thoughts.
I really liked Summer House, but it's pretty dark. 🙂
I was looking at The Map Thief at the bookstore the other day. It looks interesting.
You've had a busy week on the blog! I need to go back and read your posts. I love short stories though I rarely read them. I may have to become a honorary member of the group. 🙂 I hope you have a good time with family.
Both your books are new to me. Enjoy the graduation party!
I'm listening to The Map Thief this week and am loving it. It is just so good! Hope you had a great weekend!
Looking forward to your thoughts on The Map Thief!I belong to the Short Story Society 🙂
I really liked Koch's The Dinner so I have high hopes for Summer House 😀 California was GREAT.
I looooove me a dark, dark tale 😀
I really liked it, Heidi! Full of nerdy good information 😀
I like short stories too but I almost forget they exist for some reason. I'm hoping that the FB group will remind me to tackle them!
Thanks 😀 I had a great time!
It's nerdy good isn't it?? I really enjoyed it.
I should really get going on some actual book reviews around here 😉
