What a wonderful coincidence: Just a couple of weeks after I read “Shrill,” This American Life replays one of the episodes that introduced me to Lindy West. 💚❤️

This book hits three of my favorite categories: 1. Novels that make you think, “WTF,” 2. Campus comedies, and 3. Literary classics.

Portnoy's Complaint | Philip Roth
post image

Confession: I didn't find "Portnoy's Complaint" funny. And by the time I read it in the '90s it certainly wasn't shocking anymore. I need to work on reading the rest of his oeuvre. Perhaps desire will strike someday.

Kind of hard to make out in the picture, but seeing a copy of "Waiting for Godot" in the lost books bin of our campus library seems quite appropriate.

wanderinglynn I‘ve lost/misplaced a lot of things in my life, but I‘m proud to say, I‘ve never lost a book. To paraphrase HHGTTG, I always know where my book is. 😉 1y
Carissa-Green-Reads So true, Glynn. When I lose a book it's because I loan it, and the borrower makes the loan "permanent." Sigh 1y

My two-sentence (Jane approved) review for Litsy: Tye treats the subject of this biography with respect and integrity - and just enough wit and irreverence thrown in for good measure. Satchel would approve, I think.

My two-sentence review for Litsy: Considering its subject matter, this memoir is strangely not compelling. I hope Aaron Sorkin can make something more interesting and artistic out of it.

The release of the film "The Post" finally motivated me to pick up Katharine Graham's memoir. Twenty years after its initial publication.

Two sentence review: This novella is from the point of view of an AIDS home care worker at the height of the crisis. Some 20 years later, it still made me cry.
