On Episode 164 of What Should I Read Next, Anne Bogel recommended Montana 1948 by Larry Watson as a buddy read for us. Its strong sense of place, small town drama, and sparse but powerful prose appealed to both of our tastes. The story is about a 12 year old boy and his family and how the summer of 1948 changes, and unravels, them all. Listeners should be aware that this book discussion will cover topics like sexual assault, racism, and suicide. Take care of yourselves and skip this episode if you need to.
(On the episode, we grouped Richard Wagamese with Native American authors, but he is one of Canada's most important Indigenous authors. We highly recommend his book to all readers!)
