Afternoon Inqueery

AI: Best Book Recently?

I am always looking for recommendations for good books, especially if they’re available on audio since I spend a lot of time traveling.

Things I have read and enjoyed recently:

The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander
Dodger by Sir Terry Pratchett (my favorite fiction author)
Heads In Beds by Jacob Tomsky

What have you read or listened to lately that was great?

The Afternoon Inqueery (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Queereka community. Look for it every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 3pm ET.

    Don’t know if it’s available in audio, but I loved Gay New York by George Chauncey. It paints a fascinating picture of the pre-war metropolis, and it’s theoretically informed, historically meticulous, and tries to account for the diversity of the gay male community at the time.

    I recently read Consuming Grief by Beth Conklin about compassionate cannibalism among the Wari’ of Brazil. It’s a fantastic read if you’re into anthropology and thinking about different conceptions of the body. It’s academic, but it’s not inaccessible to people with little-to-no anthropological background. All you need is an open mind! =)

    I also really like Gay New York by Chauncey, which theelectricturtle mentions above.
