Books Acquired Recently

Enszer, Julie R., ed. Sister Love: The Letters of Audre Lorde and Pat Parker, 1974-1989. Dover, FL: A Midsummer Night’s Press/Sinister Wisdom, 2018.

I deeply appreciate Lorde’s life writing and was thus excited to hear about this collection of her letters.

Espada, Martín, Lauren Marie Schmidt, and J.D. Schraffenberger. The Necessary Poetics of Atheism: Essays and Poems. Sherman, IL: Twelve Winters Press, 2016.

I love Espada’s work and when I heard about this book its title intrigued me, so I decided to buy it.

Both books were acquired from amazon.com.

Books Acquired Recently: 2019 Edition

Bonomo, Joe. No Place I Would Rather Be: Roger Angell and a Life in Baseball Writing. Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 2019.

I’ve loved Roger Angell’s baseball writing since I first encountered it in the New Yorker in the mid-2000s. I am thus excited to read this book about his writing.

Darling, Ron, with Daniel Paisner. 108 Stitches: Loose Threads, Ripping Yarns, and the Darndest Characters from My Time in the Game. New York: St. Martin’s Press, 2019.

I enjoy Ron Darling’s work as one of the Mets’ broadcasters, and I am obsessed with the 1986 Mets, so of course I bought this book.

Habib, Samra. We Have Always Been Here: A Queer Muslim Memoir. Toronto: Viking, 2019.

I bought this book as soon as I heard about it because Samra writes from a similar position as I do (i.e., queer brown religious). I read it yesterday and it is excellent, 5/5.

I purchased all three books from amazon.com with a gift certificate.
