Hello again! Love a post about good news and books. Shared your good news with a couple of Austin pals! Your book list is great. I especially liked your own mentions of Levy, Lockwood, and Gay. I almost singularly write about the books I read (here https://aseverm.com/read) but thought I'd list a few that remind me of the ones you named.

I just finished Cathy Park Hong's Minor Feelings. I finished an essay each morning and felt my brain come more alive.
