Lead Your Mind Astray

The most you can hope for from a book is that it will lead your mind astray fully and completely– while riding the subway, relaxing on the beach, lounging on a lazy Sunday afternoon, or escaping ennui. Frisky contributor Chloe Caldwell’s new collection of essays, Legs Get Led Astray, will take you on a walk through her childhood dreams, her first loves, her sexual experiences, her wanderlust, and the suicide of a lost love. I don’t know about you, but “a scorching hot glitter box of youthful despair and dark delight,” as Cheryl Strayed calls the collection, is exactly the kind of stroll I’m up for. [$7.19, Amazon]
