Tessy Scrolling through your posts I am excited to find someone who reads after my own tastes. Have been looking long and hard for inspiration and it is all here. We have read many of the same books and most of the remainder look intriguing enough to go search for. Thank you for sharing with us. 1y

Imagine Wanting Only This | Kristen Radtke

Finally got to reading this, and it is indeed as good as advertised. Impermanence and change, and our desire to be anywhere but here, all wrapped in the memoir of loss and restlessness.

The History of the Future | Edward McPherson
post image
Pickpick

'American essays' is indeed how I would describe this collection. McPherson writes about Americana: from finding things in his old house in Gettysburg to oil boom in North Dakota to Trinity test in 1945. Not entirely uplifting but smart and personal. #essays #history #americana #travel #memoir #environment #cities #usa @coffeehousepress

Such a tender, beautiful, loving book. Told in stories and journal entries, it chronicles Hayes's move to NYC at 48 and his life with Oliver Sacks and Sacks's last days. This book radiates love and life.

ReadingEnvy This is non fiction right? Mieville is always doing something new! 3y
Genrebending @ReadingEnvy i think it's not his first, this one is just getting more publicity. It's a good primer (1917 was a mess, he somehow managed to make a coherent story out of it) 3y

The Fact of a Body: A Murder and a Memoir | Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich
post image
Pickpick

What a devastating book. So many triggers, so many thoughts. I'm not a true crime reader, but this book is so much more: a memoir, a deliberation on the role and rule of law, mental health, family, and compassion.

Long Black Veil | Jennifer Finney Boylan
post image
Pickpick

Far from being a simple mystery novel, this is an exploration of identity, of keeping secrets, of who we are and how we change as we go through life. I've never read Boylan's fiction, but I'm glad I picked this one up. Of course, y'all should go read her memoir She's Not There. #trans #lgbtq

Apropos the recent Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie comments. I love her dearly, but if she is going to speak on feminism, she should both brush up on theory and make friends with some trans women. #trans #feminism #intersectionality

BookishMarginalia Agreed. I winced at her comments on trans women. I think someone needs to teach her about the "male privilege" of pre-transition trans women. 3y

You asked whether people's happiness or aspirations could depend on the decisions of politicians who happen to be in power. Allow me to give you what you may think a predictable answer -- yes, they can, it one does not own a thousand hectares of land.

Priestdaddy: A Memoir | Patricia Lockwood
post image
Pickpick

My first book of the year is already one of my favorites of 2017. Much like her poetry, Lockwood's memoir is pure word witchcraft. It's irreverent, dark, funny, smart, and raw. Start with her poems and then read this. Out in May.
