Thanks for the book recommendation. I loved Heart of Darkness as a teenager (haven't read it since, will have to re-read and see how it holds up for me after 20+ years) so I thought Season of Migration to the North would be interesting. I'm liking it so far. The Kindle edition has enough typos to annoy me, though; not sure if those are present in the original translation or if they're a product of the e-book conversion, as sometimes happens.

Glad you're enjoying the book so far (and am curious to get your thoughts once you're done). I am surprised to hear about the typos—they are not in the original translation but I have had this issue with converted ebooks for books that were published before the digital era. That is likely the issue here.

Thanks for reading the salon! Please feel free to share your own recommendations as well.
