I Just Want My Pants Back
I Just Want My Pants Back: A Novel | David Rosen
3 posts | 3 read
Now a new MTV series, from acclaimed director and executive producer Doug Liman (Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Swingers, Go, Bourne Identity) Jason Strider is a twentysomething young man in the city, with an English degree from an Ivy League university, a very small apartment in the West Village, a vapid job as a receptionist at a casting agencyand no particular idea what to do with his life. On most evenings, Jason gets stoned and goes out, sometimes with his party-hearty school chum Tina and sometimes alone in the immemorial male quest to get laid or, if not, get hammered enough to really regret it the next day and be late for work. Then one night Jason has athletic, appliance-assisted intercourse with a cute girl named Janeand ends up lending her his Dickies jeans. Many, many e-mails and text messages later, he is unable to reconnect with her and is reduced to the plaint I just want my pants back. How he does, in a most unexpected way, find those pants, and how maturity and mortality come to enter his slackers existence, form the matter of this smart, raunchily comic, and finally affecting first novel.

Mehso-so

I‘m sad because this had promise. There were more than a few parts that had actually made me laugh out loud. The plot just became so uninteresting towards the end. It delved too much in the “shallow white man in his 20‘s has mid-life crisis” poor me shit. The last 20 pages were a slog to get through and this is a short book. Idk it was okay but it doesn‘t have re-readability for me

Trying to focus on my book and not stress out. WI supreme court overruled our governors stay at home order so now the bars in our town are opening tonight. I‘ve had an influx of calls for people needing to get drunk apparently.

I just need to breathe and focus on how Jason is going to get his pants back 😥😂
