Real Life

by: Brandon Taylor

Publisher: Riverhead Books (2020)


This book is devastating!!! It's sometimes too real, since it's partly autobiographical. It asks you to consider what to do when your long repressed trauma seems to infiltrate every part of your life. Taylor's lovely writing embraces the emotionality of this story and envelopes you gently into the interiority of his life. Sooo worth the lonely emptiness you'd feel after finishing this book... :) -NH
