My Year of Meats

My Year of Meats - Ruth Ozeki It's funny how expectations get in the way of a read. This was recommended to me and I came to it with preconceived ideas that weren't actually there in the story. I liked this book. The only thing that stopped me from really liking it was that it felt plotted and a little contrived. And yet in the interview with the author at the end of the book she revealed that the plot didn't come till she was well into writing. So there you go.
