I'm an undergraduate studying philosophy, religion and literature. I have interests ranging from Marxist and critical theory to pulpy fantasy settings.

I've often heard it alleged that he was killed on the orders of the Pinochet junta because of his support for Communism. In 2013, they exhumed his remains and didn't find any chemical agents.
I would like to strongly second Blankets. I'm not much of a comic book/graphic novel reader, but very few stories have had such a strong emotional impact on me as Blankets did.
Edit: this is especially good if you're interested in or can empathize with growing up in and growing out of an evangelical Christian community
I often see people pointing to Job as a sort of canonical theodicy, but the one that it provides is ultimately an unsatisfying non-theodicy. It's extremely problematic for my understanding of the way the text presents God: on one hand, he's the righteous champion of justice, fairness, and loving-kindness--and on the other, he's an amoral antagonist whose punishment is indiscriminate. How do you deal with these incongruities?
