"The best book I read this year was Marco Roth's The Scientists, a riveting, soul-baring memoir about the author's relationship with his father, who died of AIDS in the early '90s. It's part mystery, part tragedy, part spiritual and intellectual autobiography. It's beautifully written and as honest as a book can be."
"I also loved Draw It With Your Eyes Closed: The Art of the Art Assignment, an anthology by the art magazine Paper Monument, and How Should a Person Be?, a novel by Sheila Heti."
