I read about An Unnecessary Woman by Rabih  Alameddine in  The New Yorker and then I heard about it on NPR and knew I had to read it. I’ve turned to books and literature for escapism since I was a little girl so when I read this description of the main character, Aaliya Saleh, written by Andrea Denhoed of The New Yorker, I felt I had to buy it right away! “She turns to the companionship of literature and ‘a blind lust for the written word.’ Books are her retreat from the turmoil of the world and her consuming passion. ”

What books are you reading right now?
