    So happy to hear that about Roxane Gay. She’s the best. I’ve been hearing great things about The Girl Who Smiled Beads and have a review coming of Beneath a Ruthless Sun next week – it’s a really good one.

      Haha, indeed! Although I’m not particularly religious myself, it’s something I’d like to learn more about and the Pope book does sound like it covers some interesting events I know next to nothing about.

    I added ‘The Trauma Cleaner”. It was awarded the Victoria Premier’s Literary Prize 2018 for non fiction. (Australia)

      Interesting! I don’t think I knew it won an award. I love learning about different professions, especially the more off-beat ones, so I’d be excited to pick this up 🙂

    That thing about memoirs is interesting — it puts me in mind of all the stuff Suki Kim said about the desire in publishing to make women’s nonfiction more memoiry. It makes sense in one way, but I bet publishing professionals wouldn’t push guys’ books in that direction. I just think there’s way more of an inclination to assume that men have authority and women have, like, feelings.

      Oh, that is an interesting point! I could see things going that way. I love that so many memoirs by women are starting to tackle technical topics, but I hate to think that might be at the expense of books they otherwise might have written focusing exclusively on those topics.
