This is an excellent memoir by an author whose work I love on CBC radio: Jesse Wente shares his story as an Indigenous man growing up in Toronto with mixed racial and economic backgrounds, and his ongoing work in advocacy for Indigenous justice through his career as a film critic and broadcaster. Excellent insight into racism, diversity of Indigenous culture, and the legacy of residential schools.

My book club chose this without knowing Hough‘s book-review-related controversies. We still appreciated her writing style, despite its angry, dark edge. And there‘s plenty to discuss here—from a cult childhood and its after effects to misogynistic bosses and how people become unhoused. Def better than 3/5 but not quite 4/5.

I actually have a very busy day today so not sure how much reading/listening I‘ll get in, but here‘s what I‘m looking forward to. Two from @MallenNC #NYWD list, a #LoudBuddyRead for #Booked2022 & #ReadingAfrica22, a NF gift from @TrishB which should work for #Rebel #NF22challenge and two more NF audios! The MJF was on @Hooked_on_books #Top21of21 list ❤️

Hooked_on_books I hope you enjoy it! He has such an amazing attitude in the face of chronic illness. I listened to that book almost a full year ago and it‘s still strongly with me. I had my mom listen to it when she was struggling and it helped her a lot. 13mo
Smrloomis @Hooked_on_books Thanks to both of you for posting about the MJF book. I hadn‘t really considered reading it before but I think I need to! 13mo
BarbaraBB Great planning 🤍 13mo

I‘m a holiday reading #rebel. Reading schmaltzy books doesn‘t do it for me. But this little horror novella gave me the holiday vibes along with plenty of weird and creepy elements. Also includes some commentary on the 1980s greed culture and publishing in general.

Perfect palate cleanser!!

melissanorr There was an anthology called Never Fear - Christmas Terrors with 20+ holiday horror short stories published a few years ago. In case anyone is looking for that sort of thing. 13mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @melissanorr Cool! I‘ll have to look for it! 13mo

JaclynW @TheBookHippie I may have a daughter that may do similar things in the future. Her teacher sent me this message in response to my daughters paragraph essay yesterday on FOREST FIRES of all things: "I miss her! I was literally laughing out loud reading what she wrote. She'll be the head of some women's or philosophical organization when she grows up." 3y
