I like reading books about war dogs, shipwrecks, and lady aviators.

Currently reading

The Rainbow Comes and Goes: A Mother and Son On Life, Love, and Loss
Gloria Vanderbilt, Anderson Cooper
The Argonauts - Maggie Nelson

If you've been missing the kind of discussions you have in grad lit classes, this is the book for you. It's a lovely mix of personal narrative and literary criticism. I wouldn't recommend it to my mother, because I'm certain she wouldn't enjoy this king of long-form self-reflexive arc. But if you like sending up the personal for analysis (as I very much do), you'll probably like this one.
