After taking my time with The Flame by Leonard Cohen, I am officially finished and inevitably left with a sense of disquiet, of inquietude. I can’t even begin to describe how Cohen - as a musician and a writer - moves me. His inimitable voice and his world of suffering and sensuality feel like a temple to me.
Somehow, I feel that it takes courage to put yourself out there, to reveal your past, your pain, your struggles, your darkest sides. Of course I can still talk about the writing, the structure but I feel limited to a certain extent. I am not just rambling on. It’s just very tough for me to write about this book. Why?
She Wants It by Jill Soloway is one of the most inspiring books I have ever read! Jill Soloway is the creator of Transparent, the award-winning Amazon TV series, that revolves around a Los Angeles family and their lives following the discovery that the person they knew as their father Mort is a trans woman.
