Read in March, 2011

Dear Old Love managed to be simultaneously horrifically mean, utterly hysterical and heartbreakingly touching - all in the span of less than 200 pages comprised entirely of notes to exes and unrequited crushes. It is a read-out-loud book - I found myself unable to read many of the notes without commenting: "oh how sad!" or "can you BELIEVE anyone would SAY that?!" being the most common vocalizations - well, aside from maniacal laughter of course. I love the idea behind the project - the book derived from a website set up so that people could say the things they had always wanted to say but never had the nerve or the strength or the heart to actually tell another person. I don't know how much closure actually resulted from some of them, but they certainly were fabulously interesting to read!
