4.5

Well, this book is...intense--and probably made moreso by the speed with which I read it.

This book follows quite a few people who are facing evictions or have been evicted as well as a couple of landlords. The writing is very easy to read--this bo

There were some things I really liked about this book but on the whole I'm not sure how well it worked for me. First, Padua has done her research and it shows. My favorite part of the books were the footnotes, which were fun, informative, and thoroug ...more

4.5 maybe

Wow, this is some great storytelling. A small book that packs a big punch.

There are six short stories in here--and they are quite short, since the whole book contains only 120 pages, and they are in "comic" format. Despite this, Adrian Tomin

So this has definitely been my favorite book of 2016. I discovered it on Goodreads and soon after requested it through the interlibrary loan request of my university (and it was fulfilled by Fordham University, ~3,000 miles away--thanks so much, libr ...more

Sylvia Townsend Warner
“It is best as one grows older to strip oneself of possessions, to shed oneself downward like a tree, to be almost wholly earth before one dies.”
Sylvia Townsend Warner, Lolly Willowes

Lorrie Moore
“I had never feared insomnia before--like prison, wouldn't it just give you more time to read?”
Lorrie Moore

John Cowper Powys
“One needs no strange spiritual faith to worship the earth.”
John Cowper Powys

Maya Angelou
“Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.”
Maya Angelou, Phenomenal Woman: Four Poems Celebrating Women
