The Call

I haven’t recommended a work of fiction in a while (and I’ve been frustrated on several acclaimed works of recent fiction in a row), so I wanted to put in a plug for The Call by Yannick Murphy.  It’s told from the first-person journal of a Vermont country vet who records each call he goes out on (hence the title), but uses these veterinary entries to also reflect on his life, especially his search for the person who nearly killed his son in a hunting accident.  It was just super engaging and very readable and a very nice change of pace from your standard narrative.  Definitely think about giving it a try.
