Recommended Reading for Read It Forward


I was so pleased when Read It Forward asked if I’d like to contribute a recommended reading list. Writing this post gave me the chance to revisit old favorites like Middlemarch and Italo Calvino’s Cosmicomics,as well as to talk about some of the contemporary authors I love, such as Ellis Avery, Sesshu Foster, Ted Chiang, and Jenny Erpenbeck. I have to say I really appreciate Read It Forward’s design sensibility too—it’s fun to click on the white circles to read about each book. Hope you’ll enjoy the piece.
