THE MONTH: REVIEW
On the sixth or seventh day of every month -- since February 2020 -- I find myself lingering around the apartment door, waiting for a soft thud from outside. Okay, I exaggerate, but it's a new day to receive a brand new book in the mail! Is it going to be a tantalizing thriller, a thought-provoking historical fiction or a soon-to-be New York Times bestseller?
Who would have thought it would all come down to this? A global pandemic that has already affected 4 million people across the world and a 3.3 million layoffs or furlough in the US? It’s stressful enough to find jobs, but in the middle of a pandemic and a predicted economic recession?
Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time!
