Weekend Blog Hops - 30 May 2020

Hi all! It's time for those weekend blog hops once again!

Sorry I am a bit late getting the post up this week. It's been manic. Actually, this could possibly be the last of these blog hop posts for me for 2020. Starting next month I am doubling my hours at my office job to cover my colleague's maternity leave. My free time will be slashed. I would likely be able to set these posts up, but I know I won't have time to do the rounds visiting, and it doesn't seem right to expect people to view and comment on my posts when I can't do the same in return. Therefore, I will take a break from these events until the year's end. If I get spare time I might pop in for the odd week, but otherwise I will look forward to seeing you all again in 2021! Stay well and keep safe until then, one and all.

Opening sentence:
The restaurant owner signaled to the piano player, and the tango broke off midmeasure. The dancing pair lurched to a halt in the middle of the floor.

From page 56:
They had sprung this on him so unexpectedly, this thing that seemed to be somewhere on the scale between crude scam and shady communion with the spirit world.
My Current Read
Tadeusz Dolega-Mostowicz

First published in Polish in 1932, The Career of Nicodemus Dyzma was Tadeusz Dolega-Mostowicz’s breakout novel. Dyzma is an unemployed clerk who crashes a swanky party, where he makes an offhand crass remark that sets him on a new course. Soon high society—from government ministers to drug-fueled aristocrats—wants a piece of him. As Dyzma’s status grows, his vulgarity is interpreted as authenticity and strength. He is unable to comprehend complicated political matters, but his cryptic responses are celebrated as wise introspection. His willingness to do anything to hold on to power—flip-flopping on political positions, inventing xenophobic plots, even having enemies assaulted—only leads to greater success.
