Emma Forrest’s Obsession Curation
You will find in my online store (and on displays in my physical store) curations by writers for readers, a list of books from the genre they write in – or feel passionately about for other reasons – that they desperately wish to press into readers’ hands.
These are the books that they guard on their bedside table, the books they buy again and again for their friends, the books that they recommend for entry level into a particular genre, or incredible finds for those who are already well-read in that area. I am sure within every curation you will learn something new, but even better than that, those same writers met with me to tell you just why they love the books that they’ve picked.
In the video below you will hear from Emma Forrest, author of two memoirs, Busy Being Free, and Your Voice In My Head, published in 2011. Busy Being Free was published to critical acclaim in 2022, not only for it’s subject matter, the book follows the breakdown of her marriage to a Hollywood actor and the pact she made with herself to remain celibate for the length of Donald Trump’s presidency, but it is also a book about being lost and found again, and most importantly finding yourself. What, Emma asks does it mean for a woman to redefine herself in her forties outside of marriage and motherhood. Emma agreed to put together a curation about women writing on obsession, and in this video you will hear not only about her own work, but why the books she picked speak to her in so many ways.
Included in the obsession curation are:
Busy Being Free by Emma Forrest (hardback)
Delicacy by Katy Wix (paperback)
Slow Days, Fast Company by Eve Babitz (paperback)
