A member of Fug Nation wrote in last week and told us that she’s in the market for more non-fiction to add to her TBR pile, and wondered if we could hold a chat about non-fiction specifically. Which is a great idea! And here we are! I personally don’t read a ton of non-fiction, so I’m also personally excited to hear which fascinating works of non-fiction Fug Nation recommends — and I encourage folks to ask for recommendations about specific subjects they’re looking to explore. Let’s crack a book.

PS: This piece of art is called  Madame Ferrand Meditating on Newton, and it’s by Maurice Quentin de La Tour. You are not required to wear this hat whilst reading your non-fiction but I’m also definitely not going to stop you.
