My January reading wrap-up includes fewer books than I would have liked, but that’s what happens when a new semester begins! I’m teaching three new courses, so preparing for those has been time consuming.
Here are my five-word reviews of what I read in January.
They Were Sisters by Dorothy Whipple: adulting is hard; cruelty destroys 4⭐️
Outline by Rachel Cusk: philosophical observations grew on me 3.5 ⭐️
Nervous Conditions by Tsitsi Dangarembga: African Tree Grows in Brooklyn 5 ⭐️
Motherhood by Sheila Heti: pressures of female identity explored 2⭐️
My Own Words by Ruth Bader Ginsburg: law writings and speeches contextualized 4⭐️
Two academic books: transnational feminism is complicated, useful 3⭐️ each
