Literary agent. My authors are the ones you make eye contact with in the crowd, the ones who are like, oh yes, I am seeing this too, and yes, it IS bananas.
Who, by the way, is going to write me the big, obvious nonfiction book on money and shame? Something Brene Brown-y or Jenny Odell-y or somewhere in between. Not a financial advice book as much as a look at what people's emotional realities are. #mswl
Listening to Steve Reich (thanks @TommyVierbuchen--this is amazing) is reminding me of my kookiest current #mswl: a TRICK MIRROR-like--fun! But brilliant! But crucially fun!--cultural crit book in appreciation of circularity and stasis in contemporary music/art/literature.
Do you know what I would really love to read/rep? A Shawshank-like nonfiction story in which things seem like they're going to turn out horribly and then--twist!--everything turns out not just okay, but jump up and down amazing. #MSWL
This is maybe more one of my trademark weird fixations than a #mswl, but I am *obsessed* not just with Ursula LeGuin but with her entire family of origin, the Kroebers. They were all fascinating and funny and wildly ahead of their time and someone write me this book?!
