Bookmarks List/Bedside Table

Currently reading and enjoying...

  • Lots of nonfiction, it seems! Starting with this terrific piece by Ashley Ford, “The Year I Grew Wildly, While Men Looked On.” On the female body, and the complicated messages about power and lack of power that young girls are forced to receive. You’ll be infuriated by parts of this article (but it might also feel very familiar). A powerful snippet: “My body was doing what it was supposed to do, and I would catch up. I wished no one would have to watch this happen."
  • Richard Gilbert’s great memoir, Shepherd. Gilbert’s prose is patient, natural, and swept up in the landscape. More thoughts on the book (and comments from the author) in a profile piece here.
