Ain't I A Woman is a good overview of black feminism from antebellum south through slavery abolition up until second wave feminism but from memory it isn't exactly rigorous in its historiography, and it's possible Angela Davis' Women, Race and Class does a better job of critiquing white-centred feminism

A friend of mine wanted advice on how to start reading as a hobby, since they probably got the attention span of your average zoomer I’m thinking of giving them pic. They seemed very curious about it.
Personally loved it, especially the letters of the narrator by his fucked up mom at the end as well as the house-plot itself.

You think ergodic lit like that would be good for someone to start off reading, just so they can find joy in it first?

I am legend is phenomenal, as well as any major Lovecraft story (or minor, the Outsider being my favorite of his). I've read a lot of King when I was younger, but I recently reread Salem's Lot and Pet Sematary, they were amazing, both are fantastic horror. There's also Poe, but that's pretty unfair comparison for most writers. Finally there's Ghost Story which I also thought was pretty great, though overrated in its own way, it's still surpasses both of Jackson's works that I've read.

What are your thoughts?

>11 A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside. 12 The demons begged Jesus, “Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.” 13 He gave them permission, and the impure spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned.

This passage obviously made an impression on Cormac McCarthy because he stuck it into Outer Dark. Outer Dark is a very odd book, and the giant herd of pigs rushing over a cliff for no reason is one of the oddest bits of it.

A black comedy digital novel about a suicidal man who must complete several tasks before he dies. "The Tetrapaq Knight". Only one dollar.

Here is the introduction:

Gary came out of the bathroom, touching his chin. That shaving cream really hydrated his face. Along with his nightstand, beside his wallet, was a note with instructions in a language only he could understand:

Burn down the building.

Donate everything to a vagrant.

Throw me out of a bus window.

Rob a store.

Hit a stranger.

Rape the supermarket cashier.

Shit in a public place (probably that burger joint at Miraflores).

Walk on top of multiple cars in a traffic jam.

Kill Eduardo Wong.

Launch me from the Costa Verde.

—You're right. Today is the day —he spoke to the paper, tossing his used towel over the floor.

This one fucked up Outlast fanfic where Waylon was held at Mount Massive for 2 weeks before the Walrider disaster. They get taken to another facility to "recuperate" but of course it's more evil shit. Then he gets forced to pretend to be Eddie Gluskin's wife to keep him calm and complacent, and that includes letting Eddie fuck him. It's a fucked, I tell you what. I love it.

i consider myself a creative and open-minded person, i like to write and read poetry and literature, but i can't stand academic subjects. i'm not sure if this hatred developed over time from when i was a child or i just lack the attention to study, but i suck at school. it's a miracle i got this far, i cheat on every test and this year i slipped up and gotta retake a test in august, i feel dumb but i know i'm not stupid. i can't comprehend algebra or anything to do with logic my mind just shuts down whenever i'm met with a problem. i take things slowly, but school never waits for me and i fail to catch up, similarly i never did something i was forced to do, when i had to read hamlet for school i didn't, but i would read it out of enjoyment now. my life is kind of a mess right now and everyone depends on my further education. should i give up or suck it up and endure it? i'm a bit fearful for my future and i know that in this world you can't get anywhere without an academic degree.

Sounds like you have developed some horrible habits. Sad to say but you do need to force yourself to learn things even if you dislike them. Most of 90% of what you need to learn to function will be something you do not like. The reason you can't take things slowly is because you are too far behind to catch up normally just by studying. I would recommend taking a break from college or whatevs and taking a remedial program. Of course you could go off the deep end and start grinding to make money without education but its a lot harder and requires agency which someone who struggles completing basic requirements in education is not ready for.
