El año del pensamiento mágico book cover
El año del pensamiento mágico
Joan Didion - 2007-02-13 (publicado por primera vez en 2005)
Calificación de Goodreads
Un libro prodigioso por su sinceridad y pasión conmovedoras, Premio Nacional de Estados Unidos a la Mejor Obra de No-ficción de 2005 (The National Book Award), escrito por una de las más emblemáticas escritoras norteamericanas. Joan Didion explora una experiencia intensamente personal y, no obstante, universal: el retrato de un matrimonio - y de una vida en los buenos y en los malos tiempos - que impresionará a cualquiera que haya amado a un marido, a una mujer o a un hijo. Unos días antes de la Navidad de 2003, Quintana, la única hija de John Gregory Dunne y Joan Didion, cayó enferma con lo que en un principio parecía una gripe, pero que rápidamente evolucionó a neumonía y acabó en un choque séptico. Durante varias semanas permaneció en coma inducido y con respiración artificial. Unos días después, la víspera de Nochebuena, los Dunne se disponían a cenar tras haber visitado a su hija en el hospital, cuando John Gregory Dunne sufrió un infarto mortal. En unos segundos, la relación íntima y simbiótica de estos dos escritores a lo largo de cuarenta años, acabó. Cuatro semanas más tarde, su hija superó el coma. Dos meses después, a su llegada al aeropuerto de Los Ángeles, Quintana cayó desplomada a causa de una hemorragia cerebral masiva y tuvo que ser sometida a una intervención de neurocirugía en el Centro Médico de la Universidad de California (UCLA). Este poderoso libro es el intento de Didion para encontrar sentido a las “semanas y meses que desbarataron cualquier idea previa que yo tuviera sobre la muerte, la enfermedad [...] el matrimonio y los hijos y el recuerdo [...] la precariedad de la cordura y sobre la vida misma”.

Again, accountability is different from punishment, though, and folks need to get REALLY CLEAR on the difference. Start with prison abolitionists. Start with this book.      fuente

Casta book cover
El origen de lo que nos divide (Contextos)
Isabel Wilkerson - 2020-08-04
Calificación de Goodreads
In this book, Isabel Wilkerson gives us a portrait of an unseen phenomenon in America as she explores, through an immersive, deeply researched narrative and stories about real people, how America today and throughout its history has been shaped by a hidden caste system, a rigid hierarchy of human rankings. Beyond race, class, or other factors, there is a powerful caste system that influences people's lives and behavior and the nation's fate. Linking the caste systems of America, India, and Nazi Germany, Wilkerson explores eight pillars that underlie caste systems across civilizations, including divine will, bloodlines, stigma, and more. Using riveting stories about people--including Martin Luther King, Jr., baseball's Satchel Paige, a single father and his toddler son, Wilkerson herself, and many others--she shows the ways that the insidious undertow of caste is experienced every day. She documents how the Nazis studied the racial systems in America to plan their out-cast of the Jews; she discusses why the cruel logic of caste requires that there be a bottom rung for those in the middle to measure themselves against; she writes about the surprising health costs of caste, in depression and life expectancy, and the effects of this hierarchy on our culture and politics. Finally, she points forward to ways America can move beyond the artificial and destructive separations of human divisions, toward hope in our common humanity.

Seriously, you must read this book. It cuts through every American mythology you’ve ever been taught, as well it should.      fuente

"Don't You Know Who I Am?"
How to Stay Sane in an Era of Narcissism, Entitlement, and Incivility
Ramani S. Durvasula - 2019-10-01
Calificación de Goodreads
Cut toxic people out of your life and take back control. “Don’t You Know Who I Am?” has become the tagline of the modern narcissist. We need to learn to be better gatekeepers for our minds, bodies, and souls. Narcissism, entitlement, and incivility have become normalized and increasingly incentivized. They infect our relationships with self-doubt, despair, and anxiety. It’s time for a wake-up call to stem the tide of narcissism and antagonism, and take our lives back.

@chrislhayes Also, when my kids were younger, I got them the @bradmeltzer book on MLK and we read it every night. My daughter was so little that she couldn't pronounce Luther, so every night I got asked to read the book on Martin Lumma King. It was a favorite when she was 4.      fuente
