Literary Escapades. Monthly Reviews, 7/2020

Welcome back to the Monthly Reviews series, where I chronologically list last month’s reads, along with a short reflexion and opinion regarding each book. Here’s what I read in July:

Literary Escapades. Annie Proulx: ‚Barkskins‘

American author Annie Proulx is best known for her short story Brokeback Mountain (1997) and novel The Shipping News (1993), both of which have been adapted and received additional acclaim on the silver screen respectively. Barkskins (2016) is her newest and arguably most ambitious novel, reaching over 700 pages.
