I wrote about reading while nursing, which was really just an excuse to write a love letter to some of the books that floored me this year

I picked up 's empathy exams at an airport over 5 yrs ago & how each essay shook me, shattered me, + picked me back up was a big factor in going to grad school 2 yrs later for nonfiction.

Seeking wisdom from the hive mind for a potential syllabus. What are works of nonfiction--or fiction, or poetry--that not only use archival research in an exciting way but (ideally) narrate or make visible their engagement with archives? Thank you!

Lists are the worst except when they aren't. Very excited that Entertainment Weekly named THE RECOVERING their favorite nonfiction book of 2018. It's honestly such a thrill to be read with such generosity & passion, and to be in this great company.
