Moller follows classical works by Euclid, Ptolomy, and Galen as they are lost with the fall of the Roman Empire. Various scholars from Baghdad to Venice recover, translate, and disseminate these works throughout the Dark Ages. It‘s an interesting read, but it helps to be familiar with medieval history. I‘m grateful that I had previously read books about the Crusades, classical antiquity, and the Normans. 📜

Wow! This is such a special book! Svensson serves writing at the highest level! He weaves a magical tale intertwining memoir, history, environment, philosophy, food, and science that left me breathless. This is a really a very special book that stares into the unknowable, inscrutable depths of living.

Poison for Breakfast | Lemony Snicket
post image
Pickpick

Is this a children‘s book? It can be, but it‘s not just that. Snicket (AKA Daniel Handler) shares his most tender tale yet. While the title suggests this book is about poison, it‘s really an artistic musing on creativity, humanity, and the bewildering experience of life. So this book can be read on multiple levels. 1) a little story about a possibly poisoned breakfast. 2) a larger story about the mysteries and beauties of life. Both are true! ☠️

The Secret Life of Fungi | Aliya Whiteley
post image
Pickpick

Celebrate fungi with this short, tender book! But like fungi themselves, the book is difficult to categorize. There are moments of memoir, science, history, new discoveries. Nothing gets delved into with any depth, but it‘s all interesting. Whiteley strikes me as a hesitant writer; she‘s not confident enough to explore fungi (or herself) beyond the surface. She captures the magic & enduring enigma of nature‘s weirdest expression. 🍄

The Wall: A Novel | John Lanchester
post image
Mehso-so

Underwhelming climate change novel. I can‘t believe it made it on the Man Booker Prize short list a few years ago. The momentum of the story is fine but it never really goes anywhere. I‘m most disappointed by missed opportunities to dig deeper into this weird society, but Lanchester committed to his uninteresting “Everyman” narrator (who is complicit with his culture‘s subjugation of “others” but thinks pirates are terrible). 🌊 🛶 🔥

The Romantic poets loomed large in my teenage imagination, but I‘m learning now that kids today don‘t know or care about them. Keats has been my ride or die Romantic writer, but I was curious about the less-cool first generation of poets. This was a lovely biography of Wordsworth who wrote the world‘s first epic autobiographical poem! His writings on nature, imagination, sensibility, and the sublime influenced all modern thought!! 🏔 🌳

This is a rough story to read. It is hard to believe the level of poverty and starvation people endure in America. Wang shares her personal experiences as an undocumented immigrant growing up in NYC. This includes working as child in a sweatshop. She lived with a level of food insecurity that I find difficult to stomach. In fact, it enrages me. This is certainly an important memoir in the quilt of the American experience. #botm

I enjoyed this history of the “haunting” of a working class English woman. Mrs. Fielding has a poltergeist that throws and breaks things. When a paranormal researcher investigates the source of the haunting, the ghost begins to steal items from Woolsworth‘s. But nothing is really what it seems in this true tale of living in the anxious environment of England on the precipice of war with Germany. Warning: triggering sexual assault content. ⚠️

This novel disturbed me. There are some elements of humor, but the MC is clearly unwell beyond the average anxiety/depression spectrum. Calling the book “quirky” seems inappropriate, but I‘m sure that‘s how some read it. There‘s something transcendent missing that Ottessa Moshfegh always delivers. Let‘s call this an interesting debut by a promising new author.

Mikita Brottman doesn‘t write average true crime books. Expect a compelling story with lots of philosophical asides. Here she examines the aftermath of a crime. She explores the vicissitudes of forensic hospitals and questions the definitions of mental illness and health. As with all of her books, this one will touch and surprise you. It will leave you a better person than you were before. Such a gifted writer!

A must-read for bibliophiles and Van Gogh fans alike! This book includes plates of Vincent‘s paintings and drawings inspired by books. He also painted several still lifes featuring his favorites by Belle Epoch and Victorian authors. The book also includes images of the editions that Vincent would have read.

Van Gogh: The Life | Steven Naifeh, Gregory White Smith
post image
Pickpick

I began to suspect this authoritative biography of Vincent had an agenda in the final third of the book. The authors certainly have a unique theory about the painter‘s fatal wound. Otherwise, this is an extraordinarily intimate look at one of the world‘s greatest artists. The nearly 1000-page book focuses on his life as an artist at some expense of Vincent‘s early years. But I, as most others, read about Vincent for the glorious paintings! 🌻

Megabooks Did they talk about how he could‘ve been killed rather than suicide. I read about that theory in 5mo
catiewithac @Megabooks They did, but I agree with Van Gogh expert Martin Bailey on this one: suicide. 5mo

I‘m addicted to Martin Bailey‘s Van Gogh books! This is my favorite of the bunch in terms of paintings. Despite 4 serious crises during his year at the Saint-Paul asylum, he painted stunning works of art including his famous night sky. The area around Saint Remy inspired his wheat field, olive grove, and cypress series. The paintings in this book took my breath away! He began with Irises in the walled garden and ended with almond blossoms. 💛💙

BarbaraBB He made his best work during this year, often in his room while looking out of the window. Bailey knows so much about Van Gogh indeed! 5mo

Cezanne | Roberta Bernabei

Cezanne wasn‘t a huge influence on Van Gogh, but his paintings did inspire Matisse, Picasso and other modernists. This little paperback includes nice color images but they are small. Some of Cezanne‘s paintings are HUGE (so look at the canvas dimensions when considering how impressive they really are). His final painting of bathers is over 2 meters! I like this one here of his housemaid with a coffee pot (Vincent would appreciate a cuppa).

Martin Bailey is the penultimate Van Gogh scholar. This book focuses on the 14 months Vincent lived and painted in Arles, his beloved Provençal home. He created numerous masterpieces here (including the sunflower paintings). It‘s also the site of his first major crisis and ear incident. The image above is a lost self-portrait showing the artist en route for some en plein air painting.

BarbaraBB The possibility of plein air painting changed art forever. And I love that Vincent painted various copies of the Sunflowers: one for Theo to sell, one for Gauguin for in his room when he was visiting! 5mo

Wow! I‘m reading all the books about Van Gogh and this was a revelation! Martin Bailey is the leading scholar on Vincent‘s art and he‘s written several micro-histories of which this is the first.

I learned so much and in such a fun way! The color illustrations 😘

I‘ve been reading art books to help inspire dreams that aren‘t work-related nightmares. Frida Kahlo is unquestionably a talented artist, but her paintings are more likely to super-charge a nightmare than quell one.

I didn‘t know much about Munch and his art beyond The Scream before this book. I wouldn‘t say I‘m an expert now, but I‘m closer to understanding the artist‘s mind through Knausgaard‘s musings. This book was a journey through memory, longing, melancholy. Weaving between Knausgaard‘s own projects and Munch‘s art, this book takes you straight to the heart of what it means to be a human being in the world. I alternated between audio and print.

Warning: this is an intense read! ⚠️ Talia Lavin goes deep into America‘s white supremacist groups. It‘s an astonishing journey in its vast reaches: YouTube, social media, dating websites, and 8chan. What becomes crystal clear is that hate breeds hate; anti-semitism leads to racism which leads to misogyny which leads to homophobia, etc. Hate is a metastatic disease that sometimes reaches beyond the web to unleash IRL violence. Important read!!!

Excellent true crime about a little known serial killer who stalked gay men in early 90s NYC. Green brings each victim and family to life. Most of the murders occurred at a time of increasing violence against gay men due to AIDS. This story makes a nice companion piece to Indecent Advances. The gripping tale of hatred and lust told in Last Call adds nuance to LBGTQ history. #truecrime

I enjoyed this meticulously researched historical true crime! It seems some people very close to the Sun King may have dabbled in poison. This book placed me in the center of 17th century Paris: the smells, the sounds, the furtive actions of charlatans and thieves. I‘m also thankful that I‘ve never been subject to 17th century French “justice.” It‘s difficult to gauge what‘s worse, poison or hours of gruesome torture! ☠️ 🐸 👑

This history of Jamestown was ultimately an interesting if uneven book. There were some parts in the middle that dragged on and made me fall asleep in less than 15 minutes, but the story picked up near the end. Most Jamestown lore focuses on Capt. John Smith and Pocahontas, but there‘s a lot more to know. I like this time in history when religious and cultural norms were in flux. And any book that features James I earns points from me! 😉👑
