Peregrine-LOGOCatered by Reva Sherrard

Gorilla and the Bird” by Zach McDermott

Remember “The Truman Show,” in which Jim Carrey plays a man who discovers he’s living inside a television show? Now think about that being a delusional psychiatric disorder. Well, Zach McDermott had it. A thrilling memoir filled with heart and heartache. ~Jon

Don’t Pay the Ferryman” by Stern, Gillis, Buscema, & Warner

This collection of Doctor Strange comics from the 1970s is a tour de force of classic sci-fantasy writing and art, spectacular cheese, chest hair, memorably derpy supporting characters, hilarious one-liners, chest hair, genuinely great storytelling, and chest hair. I really do love this book. ~Reva

Alone” by Chabouté

This is an amazing and heartfelt graphic novel. I haven’t read anything quite like it. ~David

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” by Mark Manson

“In life, we have a limited amount of f*cks to give. So you must choose your f*cks wisely.” Manson makes many interesting and genuinely useful points about practical self-awareness, responsibility, and psychological boundaries in this funny anti-self-improvement book. ~Reva

Existentialism Is a Humanism” by Jean-Paul Sartre

This classic lecture by Sartre is a clearly expressed and deeply felt exploration of the responsibilities of existence. ~Reva
