today's reading

1 hour, another 100 pages
finished A Carnivore's Inquiry
The ending of this was quite inevitable, but also disturbing. There's a certain genre of unreliable narrator books that are always quite poorly done, in the end. This is definitely the best of that genre.

3.75 hours, 437 pages
The Perfect Man by Naeem Murr
This is the story of five friends in Missouri in the 1950s. One of them, Raj, is from India, but they are all outsiders in their own ways, despite having strong familial ties to the community. It was a good read, and a fairly fast read for its length, but I'm not really sure how much I liked it. I also don't know why it's called The Perfect Man, and this makes me feel rather dumb.
