This Month

Pato Cassinoni

Dublin via Argentina

What book do you recommend to friends?

The books I recommend to friends: lately, I discovered this writer called Michel Houellebecq, who is a French contemporary writer and he really blows my mind.

What book are you currently reading?

A book that I am reading currently is called Unaccustomed Earth and it’s by a writer called Jhumpa Lahiri. It’s a compilation of short stories, and it’s about Bengali people who emigrate to America, and everything that happens when you want to embrace a new culture.

What is your favourite book?

I think my favourite book right now is Sapiens by a writer called Yuval Noah Harari, and it’s a brief history of human species and the way we are.
