WHY I AM NOT A FEMINIST
by Jessa Crispin
"If by declaring myself a feminist, I must reassure you that I am not angry, I pose no threat, then definitely feminism is not for me. I am angry. And I do pose a threat."
This slim volume is packed with some table-flipping, fire-setting rhetoric that picks apart the very deep issues with modern-day fashion-feminism. Please read this book, because we need you in the revolution.

by Sarah Glidden
In this graphic memoir/journalism, Glidden accompanies a group of journalists and an American Iraq War veteran on aresearch trip through the Middle East. As much about journalism itself(its limitations within a capitalist structure, role in reporting American aggression abroad, challenges in countries without freedom of the press) as it is about America's complex relationship with the ME and the personal conflict of a veteran confronting the suffering he helped create, Glidden's work offers depth and sympathy reporting on the ME often lacks.

ELIZABETH BISHOP: A MIRACLE FOR BREAKFAST
by Megan Marshall
I have been waiting my whole life to read a great biography on the legendary poet Elizabeth Bishop and Megan Marshall delivers in spades! Weaving in personal accounts of the poetry class she took with Bishop (after Robert Lowell suffered another nervous break), this book is gripping, world-roving, and whiskey-soaked.
