10 works for the perpetually curious

Updated: Oct 26, 2021

Hello(!) Below this lovely and idyllic scene of fungi--complete with a visiting Monarch, crepuscular light and fairy dust--you''ll find a list of 10 works of literature I find to have made a significant impact on the way I see the world. This is by no means a list of my favorite pieces or even the most important. I would find such a list both tedious in its length and probably impossible to create. I suppose this is a sample platter of the kinds of works that I consider thought-provoking and philosophical, in the non-traditional sense. I am always open to suggestions and comments. Stay tuned and we'll see what else comes up.

Essays, Short Stories and Books for Curious Minds

  • The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben

  • Ficciones by Jorge Luis Borges

  • Cosmological Koans by Anthony Aguirre

  • About Looking by John Berger

  • The Space of Literature by Maurice Blanchot

  • What We See When We Read by Peter Mendelsund

  • The Size of Thoughts by Nicholson Baker

  • Species of Spaces and Other Pieces by Georges Perec

  • Metamorphoses by Ovid

  • The Hedgehog and the Fox by Isaiah Berlin

Suggestions? Comments? (Silent inspiration is fantastic, too)
