How to take a compliment (for writers) (mainly)

There’s something bananas in our culture where it’s clearly written that we should say nice things to each other but there’s just so little in the etiquette books about how to respond to those nice things. Consequently, some people have gotten the idea that compliments, praise, and kind words might be best rejected or repudiated or otherwise smashed out of hand. Especially those of us who are not

I read this book first when I was 14 and rereading it at 42, it stands up, although I found it darker and sadder than when I was younger. The funny parts are still funny though. I adore Esther.

Rebecca Rosenblum Thanks for the suggestion! That title is really familiar, and yet I don't know the book! I will put it on my list but you are right, it's long so I won't take the chance of borrowing it and then driving you crazy.

Friday night was awesome--you guys really know how to party!

Maureen hey: i was just thinking about you, and books, and i'm wondering if you've read the elegance of the hedgehog by muriel barbery? it was one of the books i've read in the last year that i really liked, for the characters, mostly; sometimes the author philosophizes a bit much, though she's a professor, so i tend to excuse her. if you haven't read it, i think it's worth putting on your list to-read list. i can lend it to you if you like, but i keep finding myself to dipping back into it, so every time i lend it out, i get very "have you read that yet?" no doubt you already have a long to-read list, but hey, i'd love to hear what you think of it, if you ever get a chance. :)

it was nice to see you! mo/xo
