April Reads

  1. The Afterparty by Daryl Gregory (Tor Books)
    • Fun. If you like Cory Doctorow, I suspect you’d enjoy this.
  2. Epistemic Injustice: Power & the Ethics of Knowing by Miranda Fricker (OUP)
    • After hearing about this book for the better part of a year, I finally read it myself. Pages and pages of notes. Inspired the rest of my reading this month – a connection between hermeneutic injustice, alienation in the wake of trauma, the role of language in self-creation and understanding, autonomy, etc.
  3. Aftermath: Violence and the Remaking of Self by Susan Brison (Princeton University Press)
  4. The Trauma of Everyday Life by Mark Epstein, M.D. (Penguin Press)
    • At the intersection of psychoanalysis and Buddhism
  5. Trauma and Human Existence: Autobiographical, Psychoanalytic, and Philosophical Reflections by Robert Stolorow (Analytic Press)
  6. Against Autonomy: Justifying Coercive Paternalism by Sarah Conly (Cambridge University Press)
  7. The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen (Grove Press)
    • Just won the Pulitzer this month. Absolutely worth reading.

Currently Reading: The Language Animal by Charles Taylor (HUP)
