Lindy West is a brilliant cultural critic and in this collection she tackles an array of subjects from Adam Sandler to #metoo to abortion rights to (of course) Trump and the right wing.  This book is broader in its ambit than Shrill, her last one, but what really makes it delicious to read is her incisive observation, brilliant wordcraft, and laugh-out-loud hilarity.  She is making deep and important points and reading will make you laugh and be furious at the same time.

A refugee who escaped Iran under threat of religious persecution in 1989, Dina Nayeri writes with lyricism and incredible clarity about the refugee experience. She weaves her own story in with those of fellow Iranian refugees, as well those waiting in the camps in Greece today to show the insidious power of Western privilege, the hopelessness of the asylum seeker, and to make the plea for dignity for the misplaced. A necessary read.
