In This Issue

Inciting Joy, Ross Gay's first book since his 2019 bestselling The Book of Delights, is reviewed this week--a collection of essays "that showcase the breadth of his interests and the vibrancy of his prose." We also review Life Is Short by professor of history and philosophy of modern physics Dean Rickles, "a meditative gem that is as intellectually astute as it is accessible"; and Malinda Lo's "powerful" A Scatter of Light, a YA companion to her 2021 NBA-winning Last Night at the Telegraph Club; plus so many more!

In The Writer's Life, Kwame Alexander, Newbery Medal-winning author of The Crossover, describes the origins of The Door of No Return, the first in a planned trilogy, and tells us why he believes this book "is going to enhance, increase, inspire and empower the imaginations of young people."
