    Since my book recommendations didn’t actually make it into the article, they are:
    A chance to meet the author:
    The Hero of this book by Elizabeth McCracken, one of the Stern authors who will be reading Thursday 29 Feb at 8PM. A beautiful, dreamy novel of loss and London.
    Pleasure reading:
    Ben Aaronovitch’s Rivers of London series, the first one of which is Midnight Riot — what happens when a detective story smashes into mythical beings and ghosts from London’s storied history?
    Mick Herron’s Slow Horses/Slough House series: MI5 misfits and spies on adventures–dark, darkly funny, ironic, and brilliantly characterized.
    Creative nonfiction recs:
    In the Dream House by Carmen Maria Machado — a story of love, terror, and queerness told in an extraordinary form.
    Soil by Camille Dungy – a wonderful series of essay-like chapters about Blackness, Black joy, gardening, and nature.
    The Devil’s Highway by Luis Alberto Urrea. I could teach a whole course on this work of genius about the land at the Border, the people who cross it, and the people who patrol it.
