Reading Wishlist – October 2011

This month, as I continue to trod across post-apocalyptic landscapes, into alternate versions of the past, and virtual realities, I find myself craving something…

real.

I want non-fiction.

Metamaus by Art Speigelman

The Sibling Effect by Jeffrey Kluger

The History of White People by Nell Irvin Painter

I want essays.

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And other concerns) by Mindy Kaling

The Child That Books Built by Francis Spufford

The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande

I want memoir.

Monique and the Mango Rains: Two Years with a Midwife in Mali by Kris Holloway

Blue Nights by Joan Didion

I want to be inspired.

Picture This by Lynda Barry

I do not want to be escorted to another planet or decade or dimension or enter a space ship of any sort or learn a new type of magic.

The end.
