Book Note:
New Titles
16 May 2018

¶ My cart at Amazon had three books in it at the time, and I was patiently putting off buying them, because, you know, self-restraint &c; but then my toothbrush broke — the mounting behind the brush cracked and everything fell away, leaving only a vibrating metal rod. I had to order a replacement right away. That was Monday morning. The order arrived on Wednesday, in two packages. The toothbrush came in a large envelope, along with Sigrid Nunez’s The Last of Her Kind. In the box were a much shorter fiction by Nunez, Mitz, the Marmoset of Bloomsbury, and Andrea Barnet’s Visionary Women, which tells parallel lives of Rachel Carson, Jane Jacobs, Jane Goodall, and Alice Waters. 

No books by or about men. Nothing I wasn’t already puzzling over.
