  1. Thanks for pointing this out - I watched it and enjoyed it - I picked up an extra copy in an actual book shop and sent it to a friend in the US on Monday.
  2. "The Employees" has now been short-listed for The Booker Prize https://www.theguardian.com/books/2021/apr/22/international-booker-prize-shortlist-led-by-books-pushing-the-boundaries-of-fiction
  3. Glad you found it interesting, remote. 🙂
  4. So "Earthlings" by Sayaka Murata arrived at the library yesterday for pickup, and I read it last night and this morning. Like "Convenience Store Woman" it was a very fast read, and with the theme of the expectations of couples and reproduction in society. However it also has an element of horror reminding me in some ways of Nicolas Winding Rafn's "Neon Demon" but without the beautiful visuals. I can only recommend it if you've already read Convenience Store Woman and are curious. If I had to choose between watching "Neon Demon" and reading "Earthlings", I would pick "Neon Demon" hands down. So a warm recommendation to see Neon Demon on the largest screen available to you.
  5. Good luck - I hope you will get it! I was about to offer you feedback on your application and then I realized it probably won't be written in English. I also just ordered "Earthlings" from the library!
  6. Glad to hear you enjoyed it, David! I almost put the new novel on my Christmas wish list, but it didn't get the greatest reviews, so I think I'll reserve it at the library. One of the things that makes my Christmas shopping easier is that I buy a lot of copies of the same book and then send it to people around the world, so I get the gift of seeing how they react differently to the same book. I especially like to send Scandinavian books that have been translated. So this year my book gift was "The Employees/Les Employés/De Ansatte" by Olga Ravn. It seems it might be difficult to pick up in North America. But for our UK-members you can buy it here: https://www.lollieditions.com/books/the-employees It's Danish sci-fi like nothing you have ever read. The author Olga Ravn has just been inducted into the Danish Academy as its youngest member ever. She should really be able to stir up some shit with its most controversial member who prompted 4 members to resign because they didn't want to be in the same club as her.
  7. Or we could hang out here :-) on thewgb.com 🤪
