We’ve partnered with Mandy of the locally owned, indie Bookety Book Books to bring you fortnightly reviews and books that should move straight to the top of your reading list. Take a look at her picks for your early November list below…
November Book Club Pick: Hood Feminism by Mikki Kendall.
White feminists often fail to see how race, class, sexual orientation and disability intersect with gender. How can feminists stand in solidarity as a movement when there is a distinct likelihood that some women are oppressing others?
The Swimmers, by Chloe Lane
New Zealand author Chloe Lane’s highly anticipated debut novel The Swimmers has just been released by Victoria University Press. It’s a powerfully moving story confronting the very timely issue of euthanasia. In a beautiful and sensitive way, the novel follows a daughter who is faced with an unimaginable task after her mother decides to take fate into her own hands after battling with a motor neuron disease.
Poly by Paul Dalgarno
This book will challenge your preconceived notions of what a traditional family should look like after Paul, a married father of two enters the world of polyamory along with his wife Sarah. This is a hilarious and raw story of contemporary relationships in all their diversity. Perfect for people who want a modern love story with a twist.
