The Many Deaths of the Firefly Brothers is a very entertaining 1930s gangster book with an alluring element of magical realism.
I picked this up on total impulse, despite my HUUUUUGGGGE pile of things I had to read, and I have zero regrets.
Carpe diem! I encourage you to read your next book just because... It's very liberating and satisfying, kind of like playing hooky to go do something really educational.
