The first half of 2017 is already over. It feels like yesterday that we were all sitting around the dining table picking what books we wanted to read this year, and now they’re half gone!
The first six!
January – things that can and cannot be said by Arundhati Roy and John Cusack
Read it if: You want a short, super-focused conversational book between the incredible Arundhati Roy and the surprisingly erudite John Cusack.
February – this is how you lose her by junot díaz
Read it if: You want to read something literary that will also make you page-turn and soul-ache.
March – islamaphobia by deepa kumar
Read it if: You live in America and want to learn something.
April – hitchhikers guide to the galaxy by Douglas Adams
Read it if: You haven’t yet, and want to join the conversation. (It’s a part of our cultural conversation!)
May – playing dead by Elizabeth greenwood
Read it if: You’re interested in privacy, identity, and simply disappearing.
June – the vegetarian by Han kang
Read it if: You like feeling deeply unsettled.
