Most recent staff pick: Intimations by Zadie Smith

"For me, there’s nothing more comforting than a thoughtful, reflective person putting my strange, jumbled thoughts into beautiful words. Naturally, Zadie Smith dives inward, but my favorite moments were her studies of others. I hope that change in all of us lingers after this pandemic is over—a wild fascination with the deeper lives of others."

"Searing, electrifying, and devastating at times, Mailhot's memoir is brief but packs a punch. And though reading about her difficult coming of age and her struggles with motherhood and mental health is painful, there's also a sense of defiance and triumph that rings through her writing."
