Books in Pairs: Non-Fiction
Updated: Dec 21, 2022
If you liked: The Argonauts by Maggie Nelson you might like: Constellations by Sinead Gleeson or Sight by Jessie Greengrass Beautifully written memoirs in which women combine science with an exploration of body, health, motherhood and more.
If you liked: The House of God by Samuel Shem you might like: This is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay Although one is satirical fiction and one is truth, these two books about the life of a junior doctor are freakishly similar. As an MD myself, I can unfortunately confirm that the truth is often very close to this...
If you liked: The Salt Path by Raynor Winn you might like: The Way Through the Woods: Of Mushrooms and Mourning by Long Litt Woon Both memoirs about mourning and healing through submerging yourself in nature.
If you liked: Sitting Pretty by Rebekah Taussig you might like: A Face For Picasso by Ariel Henley Two incredibly insightfully written memoirs about coming of age with a physical disability that I related to strongly. Both have a feeling of (non-toxic) positivity and strength to them that I really admired.
