It’s absolutely freezing here and has been for most of the week! Time to hide under a lot of blankets and read…
Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasiis the story of Gifty and her family from Ghana to Alabama, as four become two. Gifty attempts to understand the opioid addiction that destroyed her brother, but when her mother comes to stay she finds out the traumas run much deeper.
Travels With Charley by John Steinbeck came to me as a recommendation by The Killers (inspiration for their album Imploding the Mirage). It’s the story of John driving through America with his dog Charley and what he sees along the way.
How do We Know We’re Doing it Right? by Pandora Sykes is a collection of essays on modern life. How do we know what our best self is and if we’re living our best life? Why does it seem like it’s wrong? Involving cancel culture, fast fashion and wellness, it asks readers to stop worrying about the answers and delight in the questions.
