Not exactly theory, but more leftist contemporary analysis and advocacy:
Nick Srnicek and Alex Williams, Inventing the Future: Postcapitalism and a World Without Work
Paul Mason, Postcapitalism: A Guide to Our Future
David Harvey, Seventeen Contradictions and the End of Capitalism

They're all quite approachable to the novice, I think.

Oh, shit, one more. The late Mark Fisher's Capitalist Realism: Is There No Alternative? is excellent and important, dealing with the mental struggles we have in getting past capitalism.

Edit: If you've never read his controversial (in left circles) essay, “Exiting the Vampire Castle,” it's well worth the time. It zeroes in on a key failure of the greater left in the last fifty years, emphasizing personal liberation over collective consciousness and action. Which is to say, made leftists more a strain of liberal.

Been feeling appalled at how callous I have become since deep-diving back into Marxism, and I have been swinging back towards anarchist pacifism and personalism. I don't really need the anger, resentment, and indifference to death that seems to well up inside me when I am immersed in the Marxist-Leninist worldview.
I feel that there is a fascistic element, for example, in the Rolling Stones . . .

I've studied the phenomenon of neo-provincialism in self-isolating online communities but this place takes the fucking cake.

Did you hear the one about the Marxist comedian?
Nope, me neither.
