Below are Carrie Brownstein’s favorite books, available to purchase as a set or individually. See the full list...
The Devil Finds Work
Baldwin is one of my favorite writers and cultural critics. His work always feels both relevant and revelatory. This book-long essay on film and movie going is part memoir, part homage to cinema, and also an exploration of the ways corrosive ideas seep into the collective imagination.
On me your voice falls as they say love should, Like an enormous yes' (For Sydney Bouchet). Such spare and soaring prose to examine stunted, anxious lives.
Birds of America
Moore is one of the best short story writers of all time. She is a strange, wondrous and occasionally unmerciful storyteller while also being incredibly profound.
