Globe 100 2019. Non Fiction. Canadian and New Yorker author tackles some of the biggest issues of our time with flair and humour.

On most urgent and crucial issues, also turn despair of our time to hope.
“Pure Heroines”, “The Story of a Generation In Seven Scams” and “The Cult of the Difficult Woman” are my particular favorites.

A group of essays by a young woman (young to me, anyway) who has lived her entire life online and ended up at the New Yorker. Quite a story. Helped me understand more what millennials have gone through. She is clearly a feminist, and I learned a lot reading her work. She is also quite literary, and I appreciate her use of allusions from books I have read, but she seems much more wide-read than me. Bookish. Young. Smart. A woman. All things I am not.

Also fwiw the electricity involved in powering digital servers and the devices they feed into has a resource-burn footprint probably not uncompetitive with the paper industry

To user Yuhu: read this: https://kcls.org/blogs/post/publishers-decision-to-limit-ebook-access-is-bad-news-for-library-patrons/

(It's from KCLS, but SPL -- and all libraries -- are in the same frustrating predicament over e-book licensing). Trust me that libraries are doing the best they can right now, and it's not because they are out-of-touch. Publishers are.

SPL, please get this title in e-book format. You are failing your most modern readers by insisting on hard-copy format for new releases...and that's not fair, and leads to super-long wait times for popular books. And it's wasteful of resources, since digital doesn't require trees.
