I wrote a short piece for Meanjin about conducting a more productive relationship with sadness and the books that I’ve been reading lately.
“The best writers make me feel both more and less alone. Without flinching, they’ll pinpoint the limits of human connection and consumption, the folly of pinning your happiness on a single person or product.

Only by tolerating that fact can you eke out a new template for existing.”
