Shrill by Lindy West
I really liked this–but it’s hard to pin down why. I really like how she approaches things as a person, or I suppose a version of a person as edited to whatever degree for public consumption–but the way she conveyed this surely had a role in my reaction.
It must be very hard to hit the balance between personal and sociological. This definitely tips more toward the personal, but it’s clearly deeply considered and highly self-aware, all that on top of the content, which is just impressive on a human spirit level, even if there are moments I don’t agree with. Definitely a book I will keep thinking about.
