Scaachi Koul is right: one day we’ll all be dead and none of this will matter. In the meantime, sexism and the immigrant experience are just a few things that still matter and Koul’s humor and keen observations on these subjects make her essays stand out as the next must-read on your feminist booklist. Whether she is experiencing an endless Indian wedding or being cut out of a skirt by a group of salespeople, Koul uses humor to explore societal expectations as well as her own flaws. Her ruminations on being the daughter of immigrant parents and on the feeling of being from two places but belonging in neither are powerful and playful. -Allison
