Book Of The Week

The Book Of Unconformities
Hugh Raffles | Pantheon | 2020

Recommended by Parul Sehgal at the New York Times:
"The Book of Unconformities is among the most mysterious books I’ve ever read — a dense, dark star. It’s the biography of a few notable stones, including a chunk of pockmarked meteorite, mica prepared in Nazi concentration camps, and the layer of marble under Manhattan. Raffles is serenely indifferent to the imperatives and ordinary satisfactions of conventional storytelling. I intend this as praise"
