Book 5 of 52. Highly recommend this.
Wow, what a mind-blowing, emotional elegiac travelogue-cum-food journal. If there is a perfect word to describe a situation or emotion, Zauner would find it. Her descriptions are so exact and lush that I feel like I’m marinating in a bubble bath customised to my blood type and zodiac. Her bereavement is so epic she wrote a book about it. I kid but wouldn’t it be so fantastic that someone loves you so much they write a book about you? Or build a Taj Mahal for you?
Next book: Massive: Gay Erotic Manga and the Men Who Make It edited by Anne Ishii et al.
