Psst…Pass it On: What We Like Right Now

Even our leftist, Buy-Nothing ethos breaks down come December, and like the rest of America, we’ve got eating, drinking, and buying on the brain. Here’s what our Express staff writers like this week:

Books

Being a new dad means I hardly ever have time to read for fun anymore, which is why I appreciate the rare book I can breeze through in half an hour — like Oakland comic artist Thien Pham’s new graphic novel Sumo, the compact, beautifully-rendered tale of an ex-football star who moves to Tokyo to become a sumo wrestler. (Full disclosure: I used to teach at the same school as Pham — he’s a friend.) — Luke Tsai

I finally read This Is How You Lose Her last weekend, and yes, it really is that good. — Ellen Cushing
