An expertly written and passionate memoir about love and the hungering emptiness of its absence—about how we find ourselves and lose ourselves in both states. Relentless in her searching for understanding, Febos never hesitates to explore to find the insight she's looking for, and never flinches from the personal even as she delves into her own sexuality, attraction, addiction, and the darker sides of our selves and our histories. Febos writes with such startling candor and perception that I couldn't help but find myself revealed at times alongside her.
In her debut novel, Ozeki presents documentarian Jane Takagi-Little lands a job producing a Japanese television show which is sponsored by an American meat-exporting business. While working on the show, she uncovers some disturbing facts about a dangerous hormone called DES. Humorous, disturbing and wonderful. You will never look at a slice of beef the same way.
As a teen I was a huge fan of Monty Python. I had a poster of the group on my bedroom wall and spent many hours fantasizing about my life as Mrs. Monty Python. But I digress. Eric Idle's autobiography is absolutely sublime. Apparently he knew (or worked with) EVERYONE - George Harrison, David Bowie, Robin Williams, the entire cast of Monty Python, and the Queen (of England, not the band). I laughed. I cried. No, honestly. This book is spectacular. Eric Idle is a true gem.
This story follows the new marriage of the unnamed narrator and her aloof husband, Max de Winter. The late Ms. Rebecca de Winter died unexpectedly by suicide prior to the begining of the book. As the new Ms. de Winter adjusts to married life in the mansion known as Manderly, she comes to realize that Rebecca is gone but not forgotten, and is continuously haunted by the old habits, memories, and relatives left behind. With time, secrets are uncovered and the truth about Rebecca's nature and untimely death are revealed. I should really let my English teacher know how much I have re-read this novel since being forced to read it in high school.
This was such a welcome rebuttal to the deafening white noise of the mainstream feminist movement, the one that prioritizes personal success over systemic change and reinforces oppressive power structures. This straight-to-the-point manifesto posits the necessity of a feminism that is anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-homophobic, anti-transphobic, anti-ableist, and anti-sexist—in other words, a movement that will make the world a better place for everyone. Reading it, I had to resist the urge to underline every single word.
Rosenberg's debut novel Confessions of the Fox is a complete delight! It's essentially a multilayered story that transcends and blends genres at the level of Maggie Nelson. It also brings into question the borders of linear time and space. The book is structured as an annotated manuscript documenting the exploits of transgender folk legend "Jack" and his girlfriend during England's plague years. The annotator's "voice" is broadcast via a running series of footnotes (part-academic, part-diary), which Rosenberg executes with wit, intelligence, and creativity. It reads like a literary ritual, and is emphatically queer and trans-centric, with adventurous, endearing, and permeable characters. This book is sure to be included in future literary canons.
