Las malas, Camila Sosa Villada.
Without a doubt, my favorite book from this past year. In this autofiction, Camila blends the real and the imaginary in a story that can give you goosebumps and make you cry and laugh in the same chapter.
The novel, described as both fairytale and horror story, pays homage to trans glory and a testament to trans pain. If there’s something I love literature for, it’s what Camila did in this book, letting us into her world, and being able to leave having learned so much and feeling transformed.
Dance Fever, Florence & The Machine
This album has accompanied me through a great part of 2022.
“Dance Fever has a lot to say about being female,
about self-sabotage and compromise; it strums the pain of
her listenership with its fingers, grappling with a muse
that is sometimes more albatross than ally.”

Lovely series about a young chef from the fine dining world that returns to Chicago to run his family’s sandwich shop. A deep into the complexities of running a family business, dealing with egos and loss, and making delicious food.
I couldn’t choose one. I’ve seen these two recently and loved both.
