170: Ruth Ozeki (THE BOOK OF FORM AND EMPTINESS) & Walter Benjamin’s “UNPACKING MY LIBRARY”

Ruth Ozeki steps on into the Damn Library Hyperverse to shine. We talk about her latest opus, The Book of Form and Emptiness, and how books are magical, and accessing her teenage self, and an unexpected turn of narrative luck with snowglobes, along with many other things. Plus she brings us Walter Benjamin’s essay, “Unpacking My Library” and we talk about what book collecting means to all of us.
