Now Reading: August 2017

This month’s picks include an anthology of essays on being fortysomething, the lowdown on Generation Z, a very untraditional book which reads more like a series of improvisations, and a poetry collection which may make you rethink the genre. Enjoy!

This month, our book recommendations have spontaneously melded into a narrative on the relativity of life. From how relativity affects our decision-making process in Dan Ariely’s “Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions,” to how it defines femininity in Janet Mock’s “Redefining Realness.” And in “The Glen Rock Book of the Dead,” Marion Winik writes to her deceased friends, while Rupi Kaur’s book of poetry delves into the pain of living. Enjoy!
