Mini Update Sticky Post: April 23, 2019
A recent favourite is Kim McLarin’s Womanish (2019), a collection of essays that has everything in it which I’d hoped to find in the work of Roxane Gay: a smart and strong, bold and dedicated feminist, who also crafts her work meticulously (and loves loves loves James Baldwin).
Becky Chambers’s Wayfarers series is wholly entertaining and I am loving very minute of it. (Mr. Chef is my current favourite.)
I’m also pulling from my poetry shelves, including a Michael Crummey collection.
He’s one of my MustReadEverything authors, and so is Thomas King, which is why his A Short History of Indians in Canada is in my stack this week.
Reading Mavis Gallant, one story at a time, resuming in June with Overhead in a Balloon.
How about you: what are you reading these days, and what are you looking forward to reading soon?
