Pickpick

An essay collection from Ellmann.

The essays in this collection focuses mainly on feminist issues and blame men for a lot of the wrongs in the world today, after all they have run things for awhile.

She also says her meaning about Trump on several occasions so if you‘re a fan, then maybe this isn‘t for you.

Lucy Ellman is the author of an one sentence 1,000 page+ monologue (Ducks, Newberryport.) She also wrote this provocative book of short essays, a refreshing antidote if you're feeling sick of the world is on fire newsfeed and feel like screaming. Side-splitting rants spitting with fury about THINGS, Trump, America. I can only aspire to this level of hilarity and bitchiness.

Esther wants you to know that you will like this collection IF you have a hatred for misogyny, patriarchy, and anti feminism. The author has an acerbic wit, be prepared.

So excited to begin reading this one. I gave Ducks,Newburyport a PICK but not 5stars even though I was tremendously proud to have completed the behemoth AND it still delights/baffles me. I recommend to anyone to give it a go. And now I eagerly start this essay collection.

sarahbarnes Wow! I loved Ducks. Great to know she has this collection out! 6mo

Very exciting #bookmail today! @Moray_Reads posted a little while ago about Galley Beggar Press and I signed up to their buddy subscription. I didn‘t expect to receive *two* books on the same day!

Both sound really intriguing and I loved Ellman‘s Ducks, Newburyport so very much looking forward to these.

Loving the bookmarks too….

Thanks Moray for the heads-up! 😁
