Books I Am Reading Right Now
I never read just one at a time.
- •The Blazing World (Siri Hustvedt)Novel about a female artist whose art is largely ignored by the world and conducts an experiment about sexism/gender bias in art by choosing 3 male artists to release her art as their own. It's compelling and sad and is getting pretty intense right now re: mental illness, sexism, and suicide.
- •Slouching Towards Bethlehem (Joan Didion)This is my first foray into Didion's work, and I am thoroughly enjoying it!
- •Interpreter of Maladies (Jhumpa Lahiri)These stories are big bummers but also very well written. Rich and vibrant worlds with heavy feelings.
- •Saga Vol. 4 (Brian K Vaughan, Fiona Staples)The only lighthearted thing I am currently reading. Fiona Staples' art is gorgeous. The universe is so much fun-- surreal, vulgar, and sharply funny science fiction. It's fucking delightful and after I've binged this I need to wait month to month like everyone else which makes me furious.
