At book club last night we all gushed about this slim, poetic memoir and we ran out of time before we had finished talking about the issues raised, such as:
-Work satisfaction
-Knowing when to quit
-Trust
-Clothes & self image
-Gender bias in the trades
-How we learn & the joy of learning
-Comparing our own responses to wooden things vs high tech materials
It‘s also a book brimming with gratitude & fun facts.

#audiogardening & #audiocooking - I‘ve been mostly in the garden this weekend. Cleared the chicory from the veggie bed (and then planted nicer things); boiled the greens in 3 changes of water; made it into pizza; roasted the roots for hot drinks.

Lindy @twohectobooks My backyard has plenty of dandelions right now. I leave some between my house and the neighbour's side fence on purpose; there are some behind my garage; the ones in my back lawn will get dug out in summer to control their numbers. My front yard is all perennials and shrubs with no dandelions, so that I don't get complaints about my natural garden being unsightly. 2d

A film noir of a tale, set mostly in the lesbian underworld of 1940s San Francisco, with small elements of magic. This has the pulse of a short story—something about its compression and attitude—yet it appears to be in Tor‘s line of novellas and, at 215 pages, has the length of of one of those old pulp novels. Whatever its category, I enjoyed it. #LGBTQ #historical #fantasy #romance

“The chalk. I like its texture, and it‘s essentially a powder, so the particles reflect light in a way that oil paint can‘t. Gives the colour wonderful depth.”
———-
That the artist uses chalk pastel medium is a core element of this story, a fact that gives me great satisfaction because it‘s my favourite art material. I‘m a novice artist, but I love playing with pastels.

I hung the clamps on the pegboard wall, let them dangle with the rest of the tools. The word comes from the ancient German word klam, which meant to press or squeeze, and the tight-closed shells of the bivalve, like hard lips locked in silence, got its name from there.

Once, before leaving on vacation, I copied an entire page from an Alice Munro story and left it in my typewriter, hoping that a burglar might come upon it, and mistake her words for my own. That an intruder would spend his valuable time reading, that he might be impressed by a description of a crooked face, was something that I did not question, as I believed and still do that stories can save you.
—David Sedaris (from the introduction)

The print edition of this collection contains 17 short stories by stellar authors. The #audiobook only has five, and the publisher didn‘t change the description, so that was disappointing. The audio format also doesn‘t separate each story; instead the running notes list Part 1, 2 & 3. All that aside, the five stories are excellent and each is performed with skill by a different narrator, including Sedaris. Akhil Sharma reads his own work.

Lindy Stories in the audiobook are by Patricia Highsmith, Tobias Wolff, Charles Baxter, Amy Hempel and Akhil Sharma. 6d
LeahBergen That‘s too bad! I enjoyed this collection. 6d
Lindy @LeahBergen I enjoyed it too... what there was of it. I feel cheated only because those other authors are listed and I wanted to hear their words too. 6d

I‘ve read only one paper book during my week in the Yukon (plus 3 audiobooks, plus part of a long ebook). This one is for my YA book club next week. The flags aren‘t for the great writing (it‘s mediocre, actually) but for discussion points. I recommend it for its portrayal of gender discrimination & for an immersion into the lives of Parsi immigrants from India living in Saudi Arabia. Zarin, the central character, is a complex, fascinating mess.

But when someone‘s gone and you‘re the primary keeper of his memory—letting go would be a kind of murder, wouldn‘t it? I had so much love for him, even if it was a complicated love, and where is all that love supposed to go? He was gone, so it couldn‘t change, it couldn‘t turn to indifference. I was stuck with all that love.

We went back and forth like this, each of us expressing our side of the matter, and to my surprise, I was suddenly engaged in a pitched battle of politeness, those kindly but ferocious skirmishes that are so common in our country, each side trying to polite the other into submission. I prefer these sorties to the open arguments that happen in the United States.

I bailed on an earlier novel by Reid (The 7 Husbands…) so I was surprised by how much I liked this & by its stunning characterization! The mocumentary format & interview intimacy works really well in full cast #audiobook; there are 21 performers including Jennifer Beals as Daisy Jones. It‘s about a fictitious 70s band but with so many parallels to Fleetwood Mac that I took breaks to listen to Landslide and Rhiannon. Rock on!

Lindy The ending was a little sappy for my taste, but otherwise this would have been a 5-star read. 2w

I thought love was this thing that was supposed to tear you in two and leave you heartbroken and make your heart race in the worst way. I thought love was bombs and tears and blood. I did not know that it was supposed to make you lighter, not heavier. I didn‘t know it was supposed to take only the kind of work that makes you softer. I thought love was war. I didn‘t know it was supposed to… I didn‘t know it was supposed to be peace.

It‘s heartening to see how the passion & optimism of real-life tv host Rachel Maddow might inspire a high school lesbian going through hard times. “Holy cable news networks. I‘d said the L word to her.” (Love.) Also heartening: being queer is never the issue. An epistolary novel with zippy lines like: “I have driven well past the borders of overshare city a million times by now.” Engaging #audiobook narration is by Khristine Hvam. #LGBTQ #YA

Riding public transit home from work, totally absorbed in meal planning: that‘s why I love this #manga series about a gay Tokyo couple in their 40s. Much of the book is devoted to either grocery shopping, eating or step-by-step cooking. Even less happens in volume 2 than the first, but we do get some backstory on how Shiro and Kenji met. My only complaint is weird recipe #translation, like “1/3 oz of butter” instead of 2 teaspoons. #LGBTQ #Comics

Lindy Chicken bouillon; chicken soup base; chicken soup bouillon; chicken soup broth powder: four different ways to say it in one book—another example of irritating recipe translation. 2w

I didn‘t get a good shot of my grip on the knife because I was using my other hand to take the photo, but I was taught to hold the nakiri (Japanese vegetable knife) between thumb and forefinger on the blade and my middle finger curled under the tang. There are many illustrations of Shiro holding his knife, always with one finger extended over the back of the blade. Do any of you hold your knife this way?

suzisteffen I hold it the way he does! (Thanks to some YouTube videos a few years ago that were like USE YOUR TOP FINGER TO GUIDE THE BLADE.) 2w
Lindy @suzisteffen Hmm. Obviously there‘s more than one way. I was taught in a kitchen knife specialty shop. I googled “proper way to hold a chef‘s knife” just now and the first video that comes up is one that demonstrates holding it the way I do. http://www.mooreapproved.com/2017/06/santuko-vs-chefs-knife-vs-japanese-nakiri-k...

Some poets, like Eliot or Pound, took enormous pride in belonging to a noble tradition. Take the glorious past away from Eliot and you‘d have poems too dry to read. The same if you took God from Blake, Nature from Wordsworth, or Death from Emily Dickinson. Every poet has a fount from which their work springs.

No book is entirely true or entirely false. That‘s why I prefer fiction. It‘s open about being mixed. It encourages you to use your instincts and find your own way. So, let‘s say that anything that makes it into a book—any kind of book—is speculation. Some of it‘s useful. Some of it‘s entertaining. And some of it‘s too drab to be either.

It‘s a sweet gay romance in #graphicnovel format, but I am not a fan of romance in general, so it was other attributes that kept me interested. What I loved most is the believable characterization, capturing the uncertainty and confusion of life after high school, and the weight of parental expectations. I also love the beautiful inkwash art, and all the yummy scenes of baking. #LGBTQ #YA #comics

A lot of recipes caught my interest, as you can see. The recipe header notes are warm and usually mention specific varieties of fruits and vegetables, so I learned a lot in that regard, plus lots of little tips like tasting a fruit galette partway through baking to see if it needs more sugar. The gardening information is of greatest use to those in California. Signature ingredient: herbs. “If you plant only one thing, plant some herbs.” #cookbook
