1. "In The Faraway Nearby, Rebecca Solnit weaves seemingly disparate topics, from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to the birdman cult on Easter Island, with elements of her own life: her mother’s advancing Alzheimer’s, the collapse of a long-term relationship, a brush with cancer. The result is a book that is as fluid and boundless as a dream, and just as revealing. Solnit is a master at drawing connections in surprising ways, and in The Faraway Nearby, she marries the personal with the universal to create a fascinating read."

    Renee P. recommends The Faraway Nearby by Rebecca Solnit
