The Brain: The Story of You, by David Eagleman
Felt like a short read that didn’t go deep enough but this was a nice introduction to our current undertanding of how the brain functions. The author does a nice job of keep things interesting at a high level.
Golden Gate, by Vikram Seth
This is a technically brilliant book but ultimately dealt with themes outside my usual genres.
Haunted, by Chuck Palahniuk
Ahh this one is not for the queasy. A collection of uncomfortable short stories about cynical wannabe authors stuck in a writers’ retreat.
