The Lives of the Muses | Francine Prose

Another episode of DS9 I had to rewatch because I had succeeded in erasing the dreadful episode from my memory. Some people love the mischievous Lwaxana Troi, but I think she's one of the most annoying characters in the whole Star Trek Universe. I like this photo though, Odo looking impish.

Megabooks Rene is such a great actor! 7mo
RamsFan1963 @Megabooks I agree, even in bad episodes like this, he shines 7mo

DS9 4.21 #TheMuse A surprisingly triggering episode for me. A pregnant Lwaxana Troi tries to escape an abusive husband who will take away her child, while a very old alien bonds to a still adolescent Jake Sisko in a too-orgasmic-for-comfort way and feed on his inspiration. Well acted, plotted and a beautiful Lwaxana/Odo dynamic, but oy. Do I have to watch that? #startreksummerjune

Tagging a fine book on the actual Muses.

Megabooks Sorry to trigger you! Yes, the Jake storyline is really strange, but I find it compelling. 7mo
tournevis @Megabooks At least, we know, English-language spelling doesn't get any better in the future. 7mo

Dan Mallory, the author, says Hitchcock was #TheMuse for this story. I remember it as just another drunk, unreliable woman narrator story. And I don‘t remember him at all from Duke despite his being TV editor and my being food editor of paper at the same time. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I feel like I should remember him because he sounds like a character, but I just don‘t. #StarTrekSummerJune

Kappadeemom Omg, please go Google him. AJ Finn is quite the embellisher... 7mo
swishandflick Hitchcock and/or plagiarism. Everything I hear about this guy is super shady. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2019/02/14/books/dan-mallory-woman-... 7mo
Megabooks @Kappadeemom @swishandflick Yes, I know. That‘s how I found out I knew him in real life. My friends who remember him said he was strange in college. And urine around your office is weird no matter your age or station! 7mo

Susanita One of my book clubs was going to read this, but I said I wasn‘t comfortable with it in light of the author‘s problematic history. (In addition to various articles, it was also discussed in two different podcasts I listen to.) Bless them, we will read another book. 7mo
Megabooks @Susanita Yay!! I really wish I hadn‘t given him my money. 👎🏻👎🏻 7mo
Reviewsbylola I heard enough about this book to know it wasn‘t for me!! 7mo
Megabooks @Reviewsbylola Definitely don‘t bother! 7mo
CaroPi I bought the book when it came out. For me was another thriller but I will never give my money for him again. Specially after all the lies 7mo
Megabooks @CaroPi I totally agree!!! 7mo

The Muse: A Novel | Jessie Burton

I found "The Muse" to be a little underwhelming. I can imagine someone with an interest in art may have enjoyed parts of this book more than I did, but in general it was just okay. I enjoyed the charming characters and can appreciate that this certainly has a well crafted storyline but as I wasn't entertained, it's 3 stars from me.

To read more of what I thought, have a look at my review on my blog! ? #jessieburton #themuse
