Love to read this book with my toddler for several reasons: The gentle way the book is written and the touching illustrations create space for deep listening and connects us with the variety of forms 'quiet' can take, from surprise to friendship to uh-oh's and everything in between."The Quiet Boo...

I thought that this book was okay. It had a lot to do with being quiet, and the different types of "quiet" we experience. Things such as being quiet because you see something shocking, or being quiet in on a ride at the top of a rollercoaster, are all different types of being quiet. This book cou...

Underwood reveals that almost all things are more complex than first thought, and each situation will have its own distinct "kind" of quiet.

I’m sure this is going to bend my review towards the positive, but Leaving The Atocha Station has a special place for me because the narrator is a young single dude bouncing around Madrid and Barcelona during the time of the subway bombings in 2004. I also happened to be a young single dude bounc...

Ben Lerner is perhaps a genius, in that he's able to brilliantly describe the many simultaneous, ego-centric abundance of ways we make meaning out of the world and people around us, and how we often spectacularly fuck all of it up, but also how, I dunno, there's still something really kind of bea...
