This month, as I continue to trod across post-apocalyptic landscapes, into alternate versions of the past, and virtual realities, I find myself craving something…
I want non-fiction.
Metamaus by Art Speigelman
The Sibling Effect by Jeffrey Kluger
The History of White People by Nell Irvin Painter
I want essays.
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And other concerns) by Mindy Kaling
The Child That Books Built by Francis Spufford
The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande
I want memoir.
Monique and the Mango Rains: Two Years with a Midwife in Mali by Kris Holloway
Blue Nights by Joan Didion
Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
I want to be inspired.
Picture This by Lynda Barry
Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott
A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle
I do not want to be escorted to another planet or decade or dimension or enter a space ship of any sort or learn a new type of magic.
