I reveal several books I’ve read recently to keep my mind off the chaos of the world.
Here’s a book review of Leslie Jamison’s collection of essays on illness and empathy, “The Empathy Exams.” Since March is Brain Injury Awareness Month, I have decided to do my featured posts (book review, pop culture, essay, writing update and extra pop culture content) related to brain injury or illness. This is my book review. “The Empathy Exams” is a book of essays on injury, recovery, illness and empathy instead of specifically on brain injury.
My monthly book review is a timely review of Ronan Farrow’s “Catch and Kill” considering he writes about Hollywood and the Oscar nominations were just announced last week. This book chronicles the reporting Farrow did on Harvey Weinstein (disgraced former Hollywood film producer).
A book review of “Eligible” by Curtis Sittenfeld which is a modern retelling of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice.”
