I was born a rambling (wo)man. And I like to travel with books of poetry, philosophy, and metaphysics tucked in my backpack. I also read a lot of classic literature and short stories. Regardless of genre, I seek out stories with strong elements of magical realism, narratives in which readers are encouraged to lose themselves in small moments of beauty and curiosity, and characters who live in the “in-between” spaces of language, culture and identity.

An unapologetic call-out book aimed at prejudicial behavior, like sexism and racism, most-often exhibited by men. West kept me laughing throughout the book, which will probably lessen the sting for male readers (just read the book, gents, its not as scary as it sounds). [Christina]
