The Odd Woman

Selected by Rachel Khong, former editor at Lucky Peach and author of Goodbye, Vitamin



These are books by odd women, for odd women (and men!). I love them for their singular, offbeat voices, often struggling against some heartbreak or challenge in a way that’s unique and familiar at the same time. And I love them for being unassuming packages that sneakily devastate. Each one of these books changed my brain.
