  1. I wonder if you’d enjoy An Untamed State by Roxane Gay (if that book can be “enjoyed”). I’d be interested in your take on the issues that book raises. She also has an essay collection out recently called Bad Feminist which is supposed to also be awesome.

  2. I would like to read and discuss this with you, if you can find the time. I just heard it reviewed on NPR, through the State of the Re:Union podcast. It’s a blog and subsequent upcoming book/cookbook called The Jemima Code. The author’s focus is to recognize the black voice that went (goes) for centuries unrecognized in the United States in food, household organization, and cookbook authoring — but it’s really much, much more than that. It’s the missing black voice (black women, especially) from EVERYTHING. It would be interesting to have you and this author: Toni Tipton Martin reference each other back and forth.

  3. Definitely read Free Men by Katy Simpson Smith. It just came out and it’s brilliant.

    The Icarus Girl/anything else by Helen Oyeyemi
