What If This Were Enough?What If This Were Enough? by Heather Havrilesky

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A smart collection of essays that looks at the failings of our culture. Whether she's talking about feminism, pop culture, literature, or the self-help movement, Havrilesky brings razor-sharp analysis and insight. Her analysis of Shirley Jackson and her work and its relevance to our contemporary situation is brilliant. Another particularly strong essay examines the connections between our fascination with apocalyptic scenarios (GoT, Walking Dead), our politics, CrossFit and the Pioneer Woman (yes, all in one essay). In my opinion, one of the best books of 2018.
