Lit Love from the Lonesome Highway III: Welcome Home Edition

These books have been waiting patiently on the bedside table all summer: The Orange Eats Creeps (Grace Krilanovich), Two Women (Alberto Moravia), There Is No Year (Blake Butler), Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day (Ben Loory). It felt good to crack them open. It’ll feel better to read them cover to cover.
