Great read on NPR in defense of “strange books” that defy easy categorization! Take that, algorithms!!
Money quote from author Victoria Schwab:
“I am fortunate enough to be surrounded by a community dedicated to books, filled with those ready to recommend, to press a work into my hands and say, ‘Trust me.’
“But even I find myself constantly wishing for doors with different labels, twisting rooms with strange and varied shelving. We live in an age of metadata, of SEO, of algorithm. We should be able to think beyond the same old labels.”
