Drifts, by Kate Zambreno

Staff Pick

A genre-defying work of auto-fiction, Zambreno's Drifts follows the musings and observations of an unnamed narrator as she spends her days "folding time into a book" to maximize her experience of ordinary life--or merely to avoid working on her novel. Guided by the likes of Rilke, Lispector, and Dürer, Zambreno's protagonist lets her writing languish, but Zambreno draws on her own creative history to portray the restless energy of artistic pursuit, including the concomitant struggle with nothingness.
