Reading, Listening, Watching  
Reading: Grass by Sheri S. Tepper. Someone must have recommended this but I do not recall who. I'm only a couple of chapters in and so far have mostly been struck by the distinctive prose style and the way the text does not describe things familiar to the characters leaving one with a strange sense of dislocation. The mounts and the hounds are clearly not horses or dogs but it is a mystery to the reader what they are.

Listening: I'm cautiously liking a new Doctor Who podcast, The Moment, in which the host discusses one particular moment from Doctor Who with his guest. There is more post-processing and enough of a focus on actual analysis rather than random chit chat to hold my attention and give it a distinctive feel.

Watching: B. is away so G. and I have resumed our The Good Place watching.

Grass is really interesting. I think that, and it's sequel Raising the Stones, is Tepper's best work.

I've not read any Tepper before, in fact I'm not sure I'd heard of her before getting this.
