Non-Fiction Highlights: Seriously Funny
There’s nothing like the experience of reading a fascinating non-fiction book: having your curiosity teased, assumptions challenged, knowledge nourished. The only thing better is reading a few of them. Entirely new things are created in the bright and lively disco-temple of your head; knowledge and ideas meet and discreetly procreate, and something vital and original comes into being.
Mr B’s Non-Fiction Highlights are curated lists of books designed to speak to one another. They are at once a collection of individual voices-each title comes as a recommended read for its subject-and a great choir: in combination, you get a fuller, more grounded and satisfyingly interconnected reading experience.
Like a whoopee cushion on a royal throne, or a helium balloon tied to an anvil, these titles combine levity and gravity. Encompassing topics of sexuality, feminism, modern connection, race, and disability, these books will tickle your brain.
