Reading the World 2017

I am planning to read more translated works during 2017, and will be scheduling one post showcasing and reviewing a particular book every Saturday.  These posts will replace the Saturday Poems, which I have more or less run out of free material for.  For each book, I will note its title and author here, and will then link to my review as it is posted.
