commented on Books of Jacob by Olga Tokarczuk

Books of Jacob (2022, Penguin Publishing Group) No rating

I'm really trying to finish this book this weekend (after starting last winter, fizzling out, and restarting around Christmas). My project last month of mostly reading dozens of zines and being overworked has subsided; my ability to focus is high and I have a lot more time, so I feel dedicated to this task. After crushing about 100 pages this morning I needed a little push so I was digging around for meta analysis and found this article by Olga Tokarczuk about her process and motivation for writing the book, i really enjoyed it and she is such a freak.
