London Shah @London_ShahIt’s disheartening how so few ppl have heard of Noor Inayat Khan. She was the very first female radio operator sent into Nazi-occupied France, codename "Madeleine". She was gifted and her work became crucial to the war effort. Noor was the only link between Paris agents & London. pic.twitter.com/uBB1owQKHT
S Mitchell-Stokes @TCWriterSMS@RosalieCJonker Rosie, what are you looking for, currently?
#MSWL! Fun, informative nonfiction like Geoff Manaugh's BURGLAR'S GUIDE and Jim Paul's CATAPULT
True crime like David Grann's KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON or Amy Reading's THE MARK INSIDE
#MSWL! Mysteries and thrillers, especially set in the American south, especially written by and about folks with marginalized identities
n.b. at this point I have a VERY low tolerance for hard-drinking divorced police detectives grimly inspecting women's naked corpses.
If I could manifest ONE book onto my desk, it'd be a thoughtful look at issues of race and class in the American South...wrapped up in a domestic noir or Tana French-y mystery. A tall order, I know! But one of y'all has to be writing it, right? #MSWL
