i usually have one non-fiction and one fiction book on the go at any given time
so atm im reading estates: an intimate history by lynsey hanley and fictions by jorge luis borges
the first i’m not… in love with? it touches on a lot of political issues like austerity, destruction of community spaces, lack of maintenance, etc etc etc but then keeps kind of veering off towards an argument that it is The Architecture That Is The Problem. it’s worth reading i think if u are interested in class in the UK at all but it’s just… a little bit centrist.
i am enjoying fictions A WHOLE HELL OF A LOT. im not academic so there’s a few stories i feel like i’m probably Missing The Point In and might have to do some background reading on but i particularly liked Pierre Menard as like, a statement on death of the author? it’s one of the earlier stories in the book and its the one that’s been rattling around my head the most i think
