The wonderful poet Lauren Hunter has provided her glorious to-read pile for the month of July. Lauren tells me “Some of them I’ve read already but I keep picking them up to read again!!” Behold:
A Woman Alone, Amy Lawless; Polyphony, Destiny Hemphill [somehow can’t find link to this?]; Joy of Missing Out, Ana Božičević; The Crown Ain’t Worth Much, Hanif Willis-Abdurraqib; The Self Unstable, Elisa Gabbert; Popular Music, Kelly Schirmann; Radio Cacophony, Michelle Dove; mary wants to be superwoman, erica lewis; teak, erica lewis; Objects for a Fog Death, Julie Doxsee; Room Where I Get What I Want, S. Whitney Holmes; Sister Outsider, Audre Lorde
And here’s the indefatigable and reshaped Diana to-read mound:
A new form of listing, to make things more legible (at least at first). I bask in the glory of my restraint for new acquisitions.
