A Complicated Kindness | Miriam Toews
Pickpick

This is a book about loss and how hard it is to be alive, alive as a teenage girl, alive as a teenage Mennonite girl. Yes everything is bad. So we love fiercely and we take care of each other. A masterpiece.

A Complicated Kindness | Miriam Toews

“I would ask him if he remembers all that but I don‘t really want to have conversations about the past with anyone but myself. It prevents discrepancies from creeping in.”
The way Nomi talks about her missing sister is painfully similar to how I feel about mine.

Butterfinger I understand. 2d

If you‘re like me and listen to millions of audiobooks, you need Libro fm. It works just like Audible but isn‘t owned by Amazon; instead, your money goes to support a local bookstore! Start your monthly membership today or tomorrow and get FOUR audiobooks for the price of one ($14.99).

I did as well as usual on the NYT Notable!

Read:
Trick Mirror
The Dutch House
Women Talking

Attempted:
Normal People
Spring

Want To Read:
In Byron‘s Wake
Maid
No Visible Bruises
The Problem with Everything
She Was Like That

Aimeesue Ive (amazingly, as I don't usually read new books) seven. :How to Be an Anti-Racist, The Man Who Saw Everything, The Memory Police, Normal People, The Testaments, Thick, and I'm in the middle of Underland, which is fabulous,although I am now NEVER going to be convinced to go spelunking. 2w
jillrhudy @Aimeesue I just want so much to read happier, simpler stuff. Not much happier/simpler than what the NYT adores, but a smidge. 1w
Aimeesue @jillrhudy It's tough to find these days, unless one is into romance novels, which one isn't. 1w
jillrhudy @Aimeesue one totally isn‘t. Or “cozy women‘s fiction” 1w

“Complicated” indeed! Not quite sure how else to describe my feelings about this one. (Also I accidentally spilled a glass of wine on it at one point and am pretty sad about that).

While I found the read to be dense and difficult to follow at times, the discussion with my bookclub on Saturday was fascinating. We barely referenced the book but talked a lot about the marginalization of women in general. 4⭐️ #2019 #bookstagram #bookeview #canadianliterature #litsyatoz #litsyatz2019 #w
