Hey everyone, thought I'd share what I've been reading this summer. Lots of inspiration in the likes of Mary Karr and Heather O'Neil. Really glad I stumbled across Mary Karr especially. She was featured on an episode of Dear Sugar Radio and I thought she was whip smart and a compelling voice. The kind of person you want to sit down with and talk to about writing.
The Tragedy of Arthur by Arthur Phillips
Lit by Mary Karr
Lullabies for Little Criminals by Heather O'Neil
Birdie by Tracey Lindberg
Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha by Roddy Doyle
The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton
Just cracking East of Eden at my partner's insistence. I watched Matilda a couple weeks ago. It's funny how formative those library and books scenes were for me as a kid. Like when she's pulling that wagon full of books home. I remember that being important to me.
I'm looking forward to autumn and everything it brings. Sweaters, books and cozy cups of coffee.
