I'm reading Netherland by Joseph O'Neil. Just started, interesting so far.
Love that the protagonist resides at the Chelsea hotel, which is on 23rd street. Same street I live on, in fact it's just a block away from me. For someone born halfway round the world who always dreamed about New York City. Only saw it in movies and other pop culture. This is something.
My friend Livia lent it to me. We just started a book club. I gave her On Beaty. Fantastic, fantastic. Wish I was as talented as Zadie Smith.
