I read The Miseducation of Cameron Post & tasted love & frustration & sunburnt shoulders. I wrote out my favourite passages because they remind me of what it’s like to live as somebody who believes in narrative above almost all else.
I read We Come Apart & thought in/
I read Wing Jones & teared up with the heartbreak but also with the uplifting magic of power & optimism & girls owning their bodies & their stories & the complicated feelings for their families.
Right now I’m reading What is Not Yours is Not Yours & I’m in deep navy blue & lovesick, barely coming up for air. Nobody writes like Helen Oyeyemi. Reading her is always a specific kind of longing.
