If I tried to describe this to someone they would not think it‘s as good as it is. Little vignettes of a librarian‘s life and thoughts. #arc
@Chrissyreadit Congrats on your milestones! And thanks for the #thankyougiveaway. I loved Fleishman is in Trouble and recommend it to everyone. Really looking forward to Jenny Offill's Weather because Dept. Of Speculation was so good.
I just love Jenny Offill's writing. Her narratives are beautifully fragmented without being disjointed and they give a powerful insight into her character by showing the gaps in their thought as well as the connections. The narrator struggles with the pressures of daily life as well as the creeping dread of climate change and rising fascism. These worries gnaw, constantly on the periphery, and capture the worry and uncertainty of our times
Great quote for #WorldMentalHealthDay
“... tips for helping depressive people.
what to say:
I‘m sorry that you‘re in so much pain. I am not going to leave you. I am going to take care of myself, so you don‘t need to worry that your pain might hurt me.
What not to say:
have you tried chamomile tea?”
