When Death Takes Something From You Give It Back: Carl’s Book by Naji Marie Aidt, Denise Newman (translator)

This was one of the first things I read in 2020 – I should reread it again. It feels like something everyone in the world should have read in 2020. About grief and living with it.

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead by Olga Tokerczuk, Antonia Lloyd-Jones (translator)

I cannot be someone other than I am. How awful. We’d prefer to think we’re free, able to reinvent ourselves whenever we choose. This connection within something as great and monumental as the sky makes us feel uncomfortable. We’d rather be small and then our petty little sins would be forgivable.
