i've become extremely lazy at this point in the cataloging process. forgive me.
kate zambreno's heroines combines critical thought and memoir- not that those two things are ever necessarily exclusive- in a way that feels like home to me.
rohin to thank for bringing marina into my life. when her first album came out i was like, yawn whatever i like her voice but the music is meh. then this record came out and i fell madly in love with it, which led me back to her first record for a second time so that i could fall in love with that too. i saw marina live this year, supporting this album, and she is full of the kind of exuberant stage presence that leads me to believe she would've been a madonna-level-famous new wave pop star in the '80s.
christopher isherwood for the first time, and i am now working my way through all of his novels. he is a most excellent storyteller and character-drawer, sassy and funny. an interesting look at a particular brand of queer life in europe in the '30s and '40s, particularly in war-time germany and england.
beautiful and snazzy jewelry, but it is pricey. i had my eye on these earrings for months and then they went on sale at that bastion of gluttony and unrequited-lust, net a porter. i enjoy wearing them very much.
you should read it too.
