TIGERHAWK IS READING IAN BURUMA’S NEW BOOK, Murder in Amsterdam: The Death of Theo van Gogh and the Limits of Tolerance, and has a post on what he thinks so far.
And, in the spirit of writing book reports on books one hasn’t finished, I’m about halfway through blogosphere legend Arthur Chrenkoff’s new novel Night Trains, and so far it’s terrific — it’s like a mixture of Harry Turtledove and Ken MacLeod. Is there anything he isn’t good at?
UPDATE: Another Buruma review, and more on Van Gogh, here.
