Oh, I have been bad. I've lost track of several things, and some of them were really good. Here's what I can remember:
Distress, by Greg Egan. Delicious science fiction, a journalist in the near future, deals with modifying DNA, bionics, open-source, much more. I definitely want to read more from this guy.
A Death in the Family, by James Agee. Remarkable. Deeply felt and emotional without being in the least sentimental. American. Set in Knoxville, TN, early 20th century. Vivid character development, excellent POV renderings -- many of children. The author's skill is formidable.
A Personal Matter, by Kenzaburo Oe. (1969) Bird is a young married man who suddenly finds himself the father of a child born with its brain outside its skull. All three of these authors are new to me. All of them make me want to read more of their work.
