What Is Miami Herald’s Connie Ogle Reading?
In Conversation with Mitchell Kaplan on The Literary Life Podcast
“Some people don’t want to read about younger people, because they can’t relate to it. But for me, reading a book like Open Water or Sally Rooney’s book Beautiful World, Where Are You, it’s like looking at the lifestyle of people who live on a different planet. That’s how much older I am now, but it’s really interesting to me because people in their twenties look at life differently than I do.” This week, in a new ongoing series on The Literary Life, What Are You Reading?, Mitchell Kaplan and Miami Herald‘s Connie Ogle discuss what books she’s read or looking forward to read this year.
Some of the books discussed in this episode…
Claire Way Watkins, I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness
Honoree Fanonne Jeffers, The Love Songs of W.E.B. Du Bois
Patrick Radden Keefe, Empire of Pain: The Secret History of the Sackler Dynasty
Anna Burns, Milkman
