The Weekenders: Travels in the Heart of Africa | Alex Garland
5 posts | 2 read
What would happen if you took some of Britain's best writing talent, put them on a plane and flew them to one of the most extraordinary and inaccessible places on the planet?What would happen if you took Irvine Welsh from the streets of Edinburgh and showed him a remote, dangerous village in Africa?What would happen if you flew Alex Garland into one of the world's most hazardous war zones?And how would Tony Hawks react if you dragged him away from his tennis and asked him to write a song with a Sudanese tribesman?With Victoria Glendinning, Andrew O'Hagan, Giles Foden and WF Deedes, these writers have experienced for themselves one of the most beautiful and yet troubled lands in the world The Sudan.This remarkable collection of short stories and evocative travel writing is their response -as diverse and unpredictable as the country itself.

1. Slasher Girls & Monster Boys, which I‘m enjoying, and of course Pride and Prejudice, which I don‘t think I‘ll ever finish, haha
2. 0. Libraries and me have a terrible relationship because I never turn things in on time.
3. Listen to some nice, chill music. Go outside if it‘s cool, and make a comfy nest inside if it‘s not. Get a cat. Turn off the TV and put your phone on silent. Pick a book you know you‘ll love.

1. Travelers by Helon Habila for book club on Monday. Dopesick on audio
2. Hard choice—I‘ll go with Wayward Son, but I also loved A Million Junes and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. All 5 ⭐️reads for me.
3. I should pick something spooky, but I‘m looking forward to The Art of Theft (lady Sherlock) most.
