Decided to go on a China Miéville roll and moved on to Embassytown - as a non-native speaker I love his language and enjoy his intricate worlds/stories.

Junky, by William Burroughs.

New edition of Burroughs' autobiographical account of his early days as a drug addict and dealer, but now without the stuff edited out for the sake of polite society.

I like to see illustrations in books, so thanks for sharing! They look interesting, and the story sounds quite interesting too.

"this is not propaganda - adventures in tge war against reality" by peter pomerantsev.

A journalist's account of his research into influencers, fake news, russian troll farms that character-assassinate online-content providers in the Philippines... Pomerantsev is working with the London school of economics to devise strategies in this information war.
But this book is more personal, contemplative and well written and it rekindles a sort of astonishment about what's going on in the world right now.

I mean... We're all kind of numb to stories about russian trolls intervening in Philippine politics and so on by now, aren't we?
