Interior Chinatown by Charles Yu

This novel was written like a screen play. It’s difficult to describe the work. It’s one of the most experimental works of fiction that I’ve read in a long time. It’s short due to the format, but it took me awhile to finish because there were heavier themes as it tackled Asian migration and identity in the West. I was impressed with how the author packed so much character work, reflection, and humour in this format. I felt like I could reread it again to appreciate the weight of some of the ideas and writing. It was unique.

Number One Is Walking: My Life in the Movies and Other Diversions by Steve Martin, illustrated by Harry Bliss

A cute illustrated memoir. Steve Martin tells stories to Harry Bliss and his dog Penny. They are illustrated in a comics style and Penny gets some lines too. The other half of the book are New Yorker style comics which I assume Martin also wrote while working on this.
