My Mortal Enemy | Willa Cather
post image
Mehso-so

My Antonia is one of the “best loved” American novels. I hate it, which is shorthand for saying that the book did not speak to me & I am jealous that it speaks to others. I decided to give her another read. I did this with Steinbeck last year and while I still hate The Grapes of Wrath, I happily found The Red Pony to be a marvel. I chose Cather‘s My Mortal Enemy. And it is a revelation. The characters & situation are drawn with care & pain.

CarolynM This and My Antonia are my favourite Cathers. 11h
batsy I love this book, and if you're looking for another Cather to discover this one is close to my heart 8h

I found this collection to be so moving. Sylvia Plath is one of my favorite authors and there werenso many poems that touched me in this collection. Highly recommend this one. #poetrymatters

“In April 1990, a fictional library in a Richard Brautigan novel became a real place in Burlington. The Brautigan Library only accepted unpublished books. As the national media spread the news of the library's existence, unpublished manuscripts began arriving from all over North America. The library had visitors from as far away as Los Angeles & London who came to Burlington to experience it. Over 100 local volunteers kept the library running.” 🔽

Suet624 I walked by this library so often and loved knowing it was in my town. It‘s no longer there. In 2010, the library moved to Vancouver, WA, where it is overseen by Washington State University and a local museum. https:// www.toddrlockwood.com/the-brautigan-library.html (edited) 5d

17/150 Sammie, a newly out transgender woman, is invited by her best friend to join him and their college buddies at El Campo, a swanky floating resort, for his bachelor party. The guys are pretty much jerks, refusing to see Sammie as a she now, inforcing male stereotypes on her. This is an odd mix of gender drama, social satire (all the men talk in business buzzwords and marketing lingo), paranoia and Elder Gods horror. I thought parts ⬇️

RamsFan1963 of the story were a little heavy handed and lacked subtlety, but overall I liked Sammie. 3 ⭐⭐⭐💫 6d
