Small Fry | Lisa Brennan-Jobs
post image

This is tough to review because it IS someone‘s personal story and by giving the book a poor review, it seems that you‘re actually casting a review on the author. The good: This is somewhat well-written. The bad: Brennan-Jobs has very little introspection of herself and doesn‘t seem at a place in her life where she could have added forgiveness and resilience to the memoir. She‘s still very wounded and that makes for a sad and uncomfortable read.

batsy And an appropriate expression from Bitsy as well ❤️ 5y
Notafraidofwords Hmm. This really is a fascinating discussion. Do you feel like forgiveness is necessary? 5y
DivineDiana Very perceptive @LauraBeth I believe forgiveness is always necessary if you want to live in peace @notafraidofwords And @batsy I so agree! #bitsy (edited) 5y

Reecaspieces Hello Bitsy! 5y
LauraBeth @Notafraidofwords and @DivineDiana I don‘t think forgiveness of the act(s) are necessary - no. But when someone is able to forgive and accept the person behind the acts, it does display a level of personal growth and emotional maturity to me. Forgiveness doesn‘t require closure, which is what I was left feeling that Lisa still needs for herself. 5y
DivineDiana I look at it as forgiving the person not necessarily the act. It‘s complicated. I hope Lisa finds peace. 5y
LauraBeth @DivineDiana truly complicated! I think forgiveness (not just apologies), can be a long and difficult road but could really free her from all of the hurt that still seems to consume her. (edited) 5y
DivineDiana Agree wholeheartedly. ❤️ 5y
LauraBeth @batsy 😂 she didn‘t care for this either 5y
LauraBeth @Reecaspieces Bitsy says good morning to you and your crew ☕️ 5y
AmyG I am halfway through and I may just agree with you....if I even finish this. A few times, the little voice in my head screamed “oh, for goodness sake, read something else!”. (edited) 5y
LauraBeth @AmyG I regret that I didn‘t just bail on it like @JennyM did! I could have been reading something far more enjoyable 😀 5y
Notafraidofwords Hmm. I guess I‘m a Taurus. I hold on to my resentments close to my heart and pet them like I would a gray cat. 5y
LauraBeth @Notafraidofwords As a fellow Taurus - I can relate! 5y
AmyG And...I officially bailed. Onward! 5y
LauraBeth @Notafraidofwords and @AmyG I think I spent most of the book wanting Lisa to stop wanting Steve to be her savior. Like, girl - be your own hero in your story. I got the feeling that she didn‘t mourn not having a traditional father - more that she mourned not having Steve Jobs, the celebrity and billionaire, be the ideal father. 5y
LauraBeth @Notafraidofwords and @AmyG She spent her entire life trying to seek his validation and approval when she could have just looked in the mirror and realized it wasn‘t going to happen, it wasn‘t her fault and the person in the mirror is the only one she needs approval from. 5y
AmyG I agree. And I just don‘t care about her anymore...and she is the main character. I kept thinking that if she wasn‘t his daughter, would anyone care? And who voted this one of the beat books of the year at the New York Times? 😳 5y
Reggie Awwww @Laurabeth you totally gave me Hannibal Lecter vibes from Hannibal where he‘s telling Clarice about how much she yearns for her department to recognize her honor and brilliance when all she really needs to do is look in the mirror. You‘re awesome. 5y
LauraBeth @AmyG NPR names it a best book too! 🙀 5y
LauraBeth @Reggie 😂😂 I need to stop falling asleep with the tv on... 5y
JennyM @LauraBeth @AmyG I felt a awful bailing on a memoir!!! But it just wasn‘t for me, and knowing I‘m not alone in this view makes me feel a little better. Good on you for getting through it, Laura 5y
Notafraidofwords I have to agree but the reality is that most people don‘t get there. Most people spend their entire lives seeking validation from others. 5y
LauraBeth @Notafraidofwords no truer words than those ❤️ 5y
rubyslippersreads May take this off the TBR list. 😏 5y

One part elated to be reading a new book by Denis Johnson - one part saddened that these will be the last written words we‘ll ever have from him. 😿 I hope the publication of this book introduces him to a new generation of readers.

Hollie Hi #bitsy! 👋 6y
Lacythebookworm I‘m looking forward to this one, but also have those thoughts of waiting so I‘ll have something of his remaining to read. 6y
MicheleinPhilly I‘ve never read Denis Johnson. 😬 6y

LauraBeth Bitsy says Hi @hollie 🐶 6y
LauraBeth @Lacythebookworm I know how you feel 6y
LauraBeth @micheleinphilly He had three rules of writing: 1. Write naked. That means to write what you would never say.
2. Write in blood. As if ink is so precious you can‘t waste it.
3. Write in exile, as if you are never going to get home again, and you have to call back every detail. And that‘s how he wrote.
