Teaser Tuesday and Where am I?

I've been in and around Vancouver lately (Lighting the Dark Side by Willam R. Potter) but now I'm in limbo wondering where to go next. Should I go to ballet school in Paris (The Book of Proper Names by Amélie Nothomb), or should I go to Sweden, and later Latvia on the trail of criminals (The Dogs of Riga by Henning Mankell) or should I go to China (Mr. Muo's Travelling Couch by Dai Sijie)? Decisions. Decisions. Where do you think I should go?

The biggest of the four had his hair tied back in a blue and white bandana; he stepped up, threw a short punch that caught Kevin in the face, and Kevin went down hard. Natasha screamed.
--From the story 'Blessing or Curse?' in Lighting the Dark Side by William R. Potter


  1. I'll be waiting impatiently for your choice of reads, i like them all. I would be very interested how Amelie Nothomb translates in English, I did read this book in French and liked it.

  2. Come visit me when you're in Vancouver ;)

  3. Sylvie - I ended up choosing the Amelie Nothomb one and I'm enjoying it so far. I don't know how it compares to the original French but it reads well in English. It's slim so shouldn't take me too long.

    Monica - Well, I'll be in Vancouver airport briefly on my way to Victoria next month. :)
