It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Happy Labor Day to my U.S. readers. I'll be spending mine at home with my books.

I'm about halfway through Heavy, by Kiese Laymon, his memoir written to his mother. It's been very heavily lauded and I can see why- emotional and beautifully written, about growing up and finding a place in the world.

I started Melissa Broder's new book, Death Valley, which comes out in October. I got a galley from the publisher. It's about her father's impending death and grief and other related things. It's very surreal, more so than usual for this very visceral writer.
