READING LIST (NOVEMBER 2015)

I got this ball rolling a while ago, and I'm determined to set it back in motion. With that in mind - and hibernation/reading season fully upon us - here's my reading list for November 2015.

Karl Lagerfeld's home library (!)

THE LAST THING I READ

Online - Truman Capote interviews Marlon Brando in Kyoto, 1967. From The Guardian's 'Great Interviews of the 20th Century' archive (needless to say, the entire series is worth reading).

In Real Life - I'm still dipping in and out of Hilton Als' fabulous White Girls

THE THING I'M READING NOW

Selected Essays of Gore VidalThis edit of works spans the career of one of America's master essayists – even those written in the 1960s still feel fresh and funny.

THE BOOK OR ARTICLE THAT CHANGED THE WAY I WORK:

Most recently, a piece on rethinking 'Inbox Zero'. Our inboxes are basically other people's to-do lists (or at, that's what I try to tell myself when Gmail is giving me heart palpitations). 

THE BOOK I ALWAYS REREAD:

I just relocated from Los Angeles to Brooklyn and decided to leave most of my books on the west coast, but Joan Didion's Slouching Towards Bethlehem came with me: A slice of California life that I will always be able to revisit.

THE BLOG I ALWAYS REVISIT :

For some reason Zen Habits always gives me the exact thing I need to read. 

WHAT I PLAN TO READ NEXT:

After listening to his recent conversation at The New York Public Library, I'm looking forward to getting my head around Ta-Nehisi Coates' 'Between The World and Me'.

CLICK CLICK CLICK (THREE THINGS YOU SHOULD READ ONLINE RIGHT NOW)

Two great stories on the return of Adele - one in Rolling Stone, and the other by the homie Hattie Collins in i-D.

A fantastic profile of writer Mary Gaitskill in The New York Times Magazine. 

Lenny (a.k.a. Lena Dunham's new platform) interviews Gloria Steinem. And it's really good.
