Recently, The Family Fang, A Little Life, and Oryx and Crake have fucked me up in a good way. I'm reading The Goldfinch now and it's been good. I'm very down to talk about how childhood trauma stays with you I guess.
(The Family Fang which is about two adult siblings reckoning with their childhoods of being forced into the performance artists parents' pieces. A Little Life is the importance of love amongst friends and follows four of them, one of whom survived being abused as a child. The Maddaddam Trilogy is written by Margaret Atwood and is an apocalyptic look of the United States after capitalist environmental degradation.)
