My reading year just got better--Olga Tokarczuk's The Empusium will be out in September and, no surprise, this book sounds like she's doing something different yet again--with a nod to Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain it will also have elements of horror and her signature humor and exploration of ideas. Oooh!

@JD_Cunningham @bookstodon I did not know that it is not yet available in English. I read it in German, which is out since a while and enjoyed it a lot. There are some interesting twists and joins unlikely genres together. There are also a lot of funny moments in the book. Afterwards, I reread The Magic Mountain, for contrast. Nice to find more fans of her writing around the fediverse.
