This is so brutal. So brutal. And here I am. Eating a pizza without a care in the world.
I‘m probably the first person to mention this book on Litsy. It‘s all about Victorians being hot and bothered and repressed.
This book is about the state of feminism and women‘s rights in Poland. Originally published in 2001, this is the new edition from 2008 and the author laments that things have deteriorated. If only she knew how much more they would deteriorate by 2017. ☹️. (This is also way too much food for one person‘s brunch)
A really interesting premise (the main character gets sucked into other people's dreams) but the plot really fizzled out quickly. The whole thing lacked proper narrative and was put together from little snippets, which did convey the choppy quality of dreams but did not make for a good novel. The story was really far-fetched and I don't mean the dream catching part but the part that was supposed to be realistic.
Taking bets on what I'm going to drop in the bath first - my phone or this 700 page hardback. I will start writing a diary again. I'm inspired. I'm sure my thoughts are relevant too.
Waiting for Tesco delivery (i.e. Breakfast) and reading to forget about hunger. This collection is not exactly what I hoped it would be but Still Life by Vinicius Jatoba is really good. Other stories seem derivative and boringly middle class.
