What I Happen to Be Reading At the Moment

"A thirteen-year-old is a kaleidoscope of different personalities, if not in most ways a mere figment of her own imagination. At that age, what and who you are depends largely on what book you happen to be reading at the moment.”

 

While not 13 anymore, the desire to read almost anything and everything in order to read for fun and for experience is still around. I'm currently working on my PhD in a physical science, but I love to read and books are one of my non-science hobbies.

I'm Very into You: Correspondence 1995--1996 (Semiotext(e))

I'm Very into You: Correspondence 1995--1996 (Semiotext(e)) - Kathy Acker, Kenneth McKenzie Wark, Matias Viegener, John Kinsella Creeping on a couple's love letters? Yes please.

It's even more interesting when the two participants are no modern Heloise and Abelard but much more complex, and well modern in the sense that their discussions of gender, culture, and their relationship are something that at least I haven't seen published as letters before. I'm even more impressed that this was published when one of the correspondents was still alive, since these are also deeply personal.
