I only read four books last month, but both Trick Mirror: Notes on Self Delusion and The Last True Poets of the Sea were surprise favorites. There’s just something about going into a book with no real expectations but then immediately sinking into an author’s prose with the thought that, “yes, this will do.” Neither book really goes with the other, but if you’re in the mood for either a funny and intelligent exploration of the individual self in the 21st century (Trick Mirror) or a quiet meditation on everything from grief to falling in love (The Last True Poets of the Sea), I highly recommend both.
