Because we can’t watch Netflix ALL the time.
We know you know Just Kids was a serious hit and Patti Smith is keeping up appearances with her latest read, M Train. Woven reflections on artistic creation, post-Chelsea Hotel existence and signature Polaroids span the pages of this emotional memoir.
Whether you know him for his Wall Street Journal sports column, Vogue contributions or not at all, Jason Gay is a riotous soul to get on your radar, stat. In a self-help spoof, Little Victories, he cogitates on exactly as the title indicates—finding your own version of happiness via daily maneuvers, like sprinkling peanut M&M’s on a pizza or eating seafood at the airport.
Fact: Garance Doré is one of the coolest chicks in fashion. The blogger, illustrator, photographer, and now published author shows off her French girl wit and thoughtful musings on life, love, travel, and career pursuits in a crisp, candid, and beautifully illustrated narrative.
If the title alone doesn’t hook you, then we don’t know what will. A tumbler-inspired book on one of the fiercest women in politics should really grab most people’s attention. From her world-changing efforts on sexism to innovative legal work and ascension to the high court, this politically driven page-turner elicits a view of The Supreme Court Justice as never before—and with befitting chutzpah.
You may want a box of chocolates on standby for this one. Delightful (albeit bittersweet) recollections from a literary great fill the pages of The Spectacle of Skill. Honesty, passion, and extraordinary voice define these selected Robert Hughes works, including never-before-published pages from his unfinished second volume of memoirs that are emotional and revealing. See? The chocolate is clutch.
