I'd never even heard of writer Osama Alomar. But then I was reading Lydia Davis's ESSAYS ONE, with a piece on Alomar and his "very short stories" and then I black out and when I come to, there's a charge on my card and an ebook link…

There’s a piece in Alomar’s collection THE TEETH OF THE COMB & OTHER STORIES called “Psychological Barrier” that pretty much encapsules a good 60% of what I talk about in therapy.
Anyway, I recommend the collection!
The other thing I picked up, based on that episode of The Ezra Klein Show I mentioned last week, Jane McAlevey’s NO SHORTCUTS: ORGANIZING FOR POWER IN THE NEW GILDED AGE.
Because dayjob aside, there’s time now… right…?
