reading Homo Deus (Yuval Noah Harari) at the moment. have always had loose, undefined goals that 'i want to read more'.

this time around i said i want to read at least a book a month, so once i pick a book, i determine how many pages i need to average each day to complete it in the month, and give it a go. so far so good

Currently reading "The Power"

https://www.theatlantic.com/entertai...-power/543135/

Quote:
One of the most succinct definitions of sexual harassment I’ve read over the past few weeks goes like this: For men, it’s anything they might say to a woman that would make them uncomfortable if it were said to them, but in prison. It’s glib, sure. But it gets at the fundamental imbalance of power that characterizes relationships between men and women. To understand what it’s like for a woman to be catcalled, or harassed, or propositioned, it isn’t enough for men to simply put themselves in that woman’s place. They also have to imagine what it’s like to sense the imminent danger in those interactions—to be weaker than their aggressor in every way, and to have that weakness woven into the fabric of society itself. As the adage often attributed to Margaret Atwood goes, “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.”

he brilliance of The Power, an award-winning speculative-fiction work by Naomi Alderman only now being released in the U.S., is that it conceives of a way to flip this power dynamic entirely upside down. In her world, a story-within-a-story that’s presented as historical fiction, teenage girls discover that they can generate electricity from their hands at will. This new power, as it reverberates throughout cultures across the world, changes everything. A 15-year-old girl in Lagos who’s being harassed by an older man in a supermarket reduces him to a thrashing, crying heap. A London teenager watching her mother being beaten brings the attacker to his knees. A foster kid in South Carolina electrocutes her rapist guardian to death. As she flees, she regrets not stealing a knife from the kitchen for her journey, until she “remembers—and the thought makes her laugh—that aside from cutting her dinner she really has no need for a knife, no need at all.”

Really enjoyed this. "Strange stories" as the author calls them, not horror exactly, just stories filled with a sort of dreamlike dread, impeccably written. If anyone ever listens to The Magnus Archives podcast, some of the stories in here reminded me so much of it that I think Aickman had to have been a major influence on it.
