Book Culture Selects - Cody's picks for April 2022!

Fiction:

Scattered All Over the Earth by Yoko Tawada

I love Yoko Towada's writing and wild storytelling, so I am thrilled to share Scattered All Over the Earth with you. This speculative fiction of an all too real feeling future offers a delightful cast of characters to help you find a little bit of charm and heart from the edge knife. You'll love this, then run out to read her other dazzling books. I just know it. <3 Cody Stuart

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nonfiction:

The Hospital by Brian Alexander

Let me start by saying that this is not an overwhelmingly hopeful read. Alexander takes us to the town of Bryan through a deeply researched account of the goings on of the local hospital in the year leading up to COVID-19 and global locktowns to offer some explanation as to why the American healthcare system is the way that it is. Though not actively comforting, I find some relief comes with knowing how a thing works and hopefully you will, too. <3 Cody Stuart
