Reading an essay at a time (2021-2022) and savoring them. Phenomenal.

Read this. Then re-read it in a year or two. Repeat throughout your life.

Just not my cup of tea. I really liked the last essay about Granada, very eye opening and I learned a lot. Great book for understanding racial inequality and would definitely be worth a read for anyone interested in that.

This was an interesting read for me. It's a bit depressing that many of the issues being addressed here in the 70s and 80s are still with us. There are some iconic essays/speeches in this book, but the long meandering interview with Adrienne Rich in the middle could easily have been cut without losing anything important.

Just straight up required reading. I am lucky to work somewhere that let us do a book club on this?? A few of the pieces didn’t hit quite as hard as the others, but the ones that hit are absolutely essential.
