“The View from the Cheap Seats: Selected Nonfiction” by Neil Gaiman @neilhimself is, as always, just a book full of awesome. It is a varied collection of nonfiction essays on a multitude of topics. I am always struck by the wide variety that Gaiman is able to write so exquisitely upon. But, I am also repeatedly in awe by the depth of his observations and the manner in which he expresses himself – so clearly, but also so unmistakably Gaimanesque (I think I just made up a word, but you all know what I mean). His opinions, thoughts, and observations make me see the world in a whole new way and allow me the opportunity to turn my own thinking on its head. An easy book to read in spurts and fits, but also lends itself to a full-fledge binge read-a-thon. 📚 @williammorrowbooks @harpercollinsus -
I guess I always regarded Neil Gaiman’s work as looking at everyday things with another part of your brain. It is noticing a common moment or object, and instead of walking right by it, getting close, and magnifying it in a way I just can’t seem to do. Seeing Left Hand on @drinks_only made me realize that all these ingredient are tastes I love, but I just wouldn’t have put them together like this. However, now that I have, I cannot un-see it… or un-taste it. Give your non-dominant side a chance and get this drink all stirred up, settle down into your best reading spot, and devour this read and drink.
