21 Lessons for the 21st Century, Yuval Noah Harari
An enlightening, thrilling, depressing, and periodically terrifying meditation on the future of the human race.
Theft by Finding: Diaries 1977–2002, David Sedaris
I actually dove into this after Sedaris’s last book, Calypso. I read everything by him I can get my hands on, and I’m always interested in scouring the journals of writers I admire.
My Struggle: The End (Book 6), Karl Ove Knausgaard
I read the first five, so how can I not read this one?
The Pursuit of Love, Nancy Mitford
One of those fantastic, exquisitely crafted books that I can’t believe I didn’t come across earlier in my life. Pretty much perfect.
The Line of Beauty, Alan Hollinghurst
I’m only two chapters into this, but as always, I’m blown away by Hollinghurst’s mastery of the English language.
