Short story author. Essayist. Book-binger. The first step to recovery is probably not Goodreads.

Year in Reading – 2020

Here are the books I’ve read during this very strange year of 2020. I keep these lists every year as a record for myself, but I post them in invitation for fellow readers to talk about books both read and overlooked. If you want to chat about these or if there are books you think I should read, please email me! Sometimes I write short notes (I hesitate to say “reviews”) over on my Goodreads page.

I especially liked the excerpt from Claudia Rankine’s play “Help,” the excerpt from David Adjmi’s play “The Stumble, Dantiel W. Moniz’s story “The Loss of Heaven,” and Melissa Febos’s essay “The Mirror Test.”
The Paris Review Issue 235 by The Paris Review
"Really enjoyed this issue. Wish I had someone to talk to about it, especially the last two plays."

Emily Ruskovich
“How quickly someone else's life can enter through the cracks we don't know are there until this foreign thing is inside of us. We are more porous than we know.”
Emily Ruskovich, Idaho

Joyce Carol Oates
“Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another's skin, another's voice, another's soul.”
Joyce Carol Oates

Max Barry
“ 'And so we exchange privacy for intimacy. We gamble with it, hoping that by exposing ourselves, someone will find a way in. This is why the human animal will always be vulnerable: because it wants to be.' ”
Max Barry, Lexicon

Audre Lorde
“Every woman I have ever loved has left her print upon me, where I loved some invaluable piece of myself apart from me-so different that I had to stretch and grow in order to recognize her. And in that growing, we came to separation, that place where work begins.”
Audre Lorde, Zami: A New Spelling of My Name

Lucy Grealy
“I used to think truth was eternal, that once I knew, once I saw, it would be with me forever, a constant by which everything else could be measured. I know now that this isn't so, that most truths are inherently unretainable, that we have to work hard all our lives to remember the most basic things.”
Lucy Grealy, Autobiography of a Face
