Recs for March 13 2017

– Audiobook: I am enjoying Erik Larson’s ‘Thunderstruck”. As usual with Larson’s work, whatever the ostensible topic is, I find myself engaged and interested.

– Physical book: Radical Spirits: Spiritualism and Women’s Rights in Nineteenth-Century America, Second Edition, by Ann Braude. This is a GREAT examination of the relationship between the politics of Spiritualism and the suffrage/women’s rights movements of the 1800s. It’s a great, engrossing read. Note, it’s almost entirely about white women.

– Ebook: Lovecraft Country: A Novel, by Matt Ruff. I’m not done with it, but it’s great so far. It’s combining the history of Black America in the 1950s and 60s with Lovecraft, and I am really enjoying it.
