Abdurraqib, Hanif. A Little Devil in America: Notes in Praise of Black Performance. New York: Random House, 2021.
A classmate recommended this book to me, and its blurb was enticing enough that I decided to buy it.
Davis, Lennard J. Obsession: A History. 2008. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2009.
Jordan Kisner cites this book in her essay on Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in Thin Places. It’s one of the best essays I’ve ever read, partly because of the information she shares from Davis’s book, so I decided to buy it and read it for myself.
Reimer, Nikki. Behind the Drywall. Illustrated by Andrea Mackenzie Engele. Calgary: Gytha Press, 2021.
Reimer has become one of my favorite poets, so I was very excited to hear that she’s just come out with a new chapbook. I bought it right away.
