Books I Read Last Month #2

1. “The Orphan Masters Son” by Adam Johnson  The Orphan Masters Son won the Pulitzer prize for fiction and was published 2012. I picked this one up with a little hesitation as it’s a thick, beastly book and indeed it ended up taking me two weeks to finish it (a long time in Jo-Land). I…
