Book recs for the list.
From an old friend: On Immunity: An Inoculation by Eula Biss
Recommended to me due to relevance with the pandemic, and since the book came about as Biss was navigating the birth of her first child.
Biblio (secondhand) | Graywolf Press (publisher, US) | Fitzcarraldo Editions (publisher, UK)
From a new friend: Pond by Claire-Louise Bennett
Recommended to me in relation to mundane creative acts, the quiet and everyday, solitude and maybe domesticity, but not in the 50s please-your-husband-and-the-neighbors sense.
Biblio (secondhand) | The Stinging Fly (publisher, IE) | Riverhead books, imprint of Penguin Random House (publisher, US)
