I started this so long ago and am throwing it out there as a last-gasp, “I [kind of] did it!” Somehow I’m both proud of and disappointed in myself re this Cannonball. I hate and fear writing but love reading y’all’s, and thought this would be Good For Me (true), fun (sort of true), and a good way to get some recommendations (oh so true). I’m particularly pleased with the term ‘Ballers and will tell everyone about it forever. But enough about me.
I really, really liked this book, but I don’t remember much about it in the way of detail since I read it seven months ago. The three stories are one big detective thriller, or are confusing commentary, but on what? Writing? Identity? I bought it on a trip I’d taken alone, for a short adventure. It could be any book read in that situation would be memorable, but this one was also pretty wonderful. (I also read Euphoria on the plane; it was a solid B in my memory…maybe better?) I had a few pages left to finish when I got home and while carrying it around town had people stop me to talk about how much they’d liked it too.
Happy New Year!
