I just re-read Danzy Senna’s Symptomatic. It is a fascinating book, and after reading for the second time the book still gave me chills. It’s a story about New York, loneliness, race, class, women and toxic friendships. A good companion book to this is Nella Larsen’s Passing.
Today I picked up an old copy of The Great Gatsby at a used bookstore in the Village. This classic novel seems like the perfect book to read in the summer in New York City.
Next Saturday, I can pick up more books for next to nothing at Housing Works Open Air Street Fair on Crosby Street.
Are you reading anything good this summer?! I would love any suggestions!
