Reading in Time of Corona (and beyond!)

When it comes to poetry I have gone back to T S Eliot. Tough, in some ways savage, but a poet who knew how Europe had been affected by WW1. Particularly on a social level.


Just starting my fourth Graeber book - The Utopia of Rules: on Technology, Stupudity and the Secret Joys of Bureaucracy.

It’s promising to be yet another eye-openening, mindset-challenging book. I absolutely love his style, which is erudite - but never academic or dry (quite the opposite, in fact), and the depth and breadth of his arguments.

Incidentally, his book Debt: The First 5000 Years, which I recently finished, is highly recommended! It’s strangely prophetic regarding the political, economic and moral mess we’re currently in. What a book! I will be thinking about it for months to come…
