Jonathan Abernathy You Are Kind by Molly McGhee

Staff Pick


Incomparably beautiful and a feat of astonishing daring, this book follows Jonathan Abernathy in his new job as a "dream auditor": he scrapes peoples' minds while they're asleep to remove thoughts that may impede labor. McGhee incorporates a variety of thematic and stylistic influences into a strange, wonderous beast of a book, relentlessly lampooning late-stage capitalist norms of working, wasting away, and forgetting. I'm unbelievably glad to have come across this--it's a book that makes me feel seen, heard, and felt like few others.
