Reading List

“My library is an archive of longings.” — Susan Sontag

Here are books that we have mentioned in the course of our letters. Some titles were directly addressed, others were mentioned in passing (or maybe even just vaguely related). It’s inevitable that we are going to talk a lot about literature, as well as art, film, music, and more. Thought it would be nice to have a list, to be explored in our own time. (Note: titles appear under the month where they were first mentioned.)
