I have a not-so-secret love for non-fiction. It’s where I explore history, travel to distant lands, and learn that people have done some really, really weird sh*t.
Some of my favorites:
Eric Schlosser’s FAST FOOD NATION forced me to re-evaluate my relationship with food and I’ll never look at a value meal the same way again.
In his biography, BLACK BOY, Richard Wright transported me to a not-so-distant past where being a mischievous, curious, bull-headed black boy growing up in the South was a dangerous thing.
Mary Roach’s STIFF: THE CURIOUS LIVES OF HUMAN CADAVERS was equal parts fascinating, disgusting, and uplifting, offering a no-holds-barred view of what happens to a body that’s been donated to science.
