Chance plays such an important part in finding books at thrift shops. This grouping, found across three different shops today, is a perfect example. While each book is vastly different in its own right, themes of alienation, anxiety, and dehumanization cut across all three. Which, in the end, always makes these finds strangely predestined. I’m particularly stoked to read Sam Quinones’ book, which I’ve had on a list since hearing him interviewed by Marc Maron last year.
