My 26th lucky number!

 The lucky number for the CC Spin is....


That gives me Tayeb Salih's Season of Migration to the North, which is about newly postcolonial Sudan.  It was originally published in Arabic in 1967, and the English translation in 1969.  In 2001 a panel selected it as the most important Arabic novel of the 20th century.

Honestly that sounds on the intimidating side, but also like something I want to read!  So here goes.  I'll report back on May 31st.

I thought it was pretty good and not that daunting!

I read it too and I loved it. You will have no problem, you read much more intimidating books all the time.
