really liked it
Read from November 23 to 27, 2011 , read count: 1

"On Juicy" and "Another Shoe" were my favorite essays. Some of the book was a little too (self-admittedly) glib to let me side with Rakoff, and he kept me scrambling to Google for his elder gay references. But now I know what an amaryllis looks like and kind of want to see The Other Side of the Mountain.

72.0% "from "On Juicy:" "We are disclosing animals, wired for unburdening. It's what we do as a species. When I am being told, I listen, mindful of the honor, remembering all the while that the shore would be mistaken to believe that the waves lap up against him because he is so beautiful.""
