Abdurraqib catalogs musical history with a mythic, yet personal, reverence, sharing his heroes in a way that makes them accessible while canonizing them as larger-than-life icons. Whether you’re a longtime fan of A Tribe Called Quest or a total initiate, this book holds  something fresh for you; this is what all culture writing should aspire to.

This was a year of extraordinary books, and I put a lot of thought into what my pick of the year would be. Ultimately, this is the most important book I could share with y'all. Those of us who love deserts and mountains know erosion can be a dramatic force for change, simultaneously destructive and creative. As we live through this era of significant change--personal, political, environmental--Terry Tempest Williams's writing is a spiritual balm and a passionate call to action.

The American Western like you’ve never seen it before. The book alternates between the point of view of Nora, a homestead wife trying to keep her dried-up family - and township - together, and Lurie, a wanted man who joins the ranks of the United States Camel Corps (which really existed!) to escape the long hand of the law. Nether can shake the ghosts that follow them. Tinged with both true history and elements of the supernatural, and couched in gorgeous prose, Inland shimmers with a mirage-like quality--read with a cold glass of water beside you.

An atmospheric and complex character drama, told through a series of distinct and compelling perspectives. The chapters read like interconnected short stories following the recent disappearance of two young girls, and the undercurrent of social and racial tensions on the remote Russian peninsula of Kamchatka.
