Recommendations - from me, to you
What I've been reading, watching, listening to, loving, laughing at and finding levity in. Better late than never.
Happy first bank holiday weekend of the year. Big month for Abraham’s girlies!! May the Spring usher in some lightness and joy for you and your beloved!
Top three things I’ve enjoyed this month are: 1) Want to Love Your Body? Try Swimming Naked by J Wortham for the NY Times mag. This made me cry and feel possible. Deeply moved by it. 2) Mojisola Adebayo’s episode of Busy Being Black - I got 10 times smarter listening to this conversation I swear. So brilliant. 3) this video of Sally Rooney talking about her Marxist worldview and how it intersects with her writing. Includes a wonderful deconstruction of the notion of independence!
First post that’s paid only. However, figuring this out is a work in progress! I am trying to find a way to honour all of the work that goes into this but always want anyone to have access. If you don’t have the means but are keen to read, please email me and I will comp your subscription, no questions asked.
