2863 : Reading List 2020 : #13 : Exquisite Cadavers by Meena Kandasamy

There is something so lyrical about Meena Kandasamy's writing. I wish I had written the book. Exquisite lines. 

Especially I liked her left leanings. Her implicit disdain of established world order (especially power plays like patriarchy, or even in music or art or movies). 

I went out and bought all her books. This is a book I loved both for the insight into the author and just simply great writing. 

When I give 12/10 you know she is great. She is still not Samantha Harvey or Sara Baume for me....but in a different league, very lyrical, very poetic.

At 122 pages brings my 2020 reading total to 3616 pages.
