sincerelyyo asked: Not a question, but an answer in contemporary female essayists : I like Molly Young, e.g. her piece on Adderall in n+1
That piece is great. There’s a lot from n+1, in fact: Alice Gregory on Super Sad True Love Story is a book review—a book review!—I still think about often. (Her piece on working at Sotheby’s in the latest issue: Also great.) Elizabeth Gumport and Emily Gould also come to mind. And I have a special fondness for Molly Fischer on ladyblogs.
Oh! And Elif! The Possessed. Everyone looking for this sort of writing must read The Possessed.
