I flew through this novel about a marriage spanning the fifties to probably the nineties(it is never made clear) and the sacrifices that women made for their husbands (and their children).

I was looking for something light to read on the plane and Sedaris made an engaging companion.

I'd read one of his earlier collections of essays on quirky topics and didn't really get him. But on the

A masculine book in every sense of the word. The prose is spare and muscular (although it can be poetic too in its own intense brooding way). The story is lean. Basically two men with different lives whose paths cross and everything changes. (I won't ...more

The torrent of memories and the depth of detail in this memoir is strangely hypnotic. At times - like the beautiful opening paragraph - the effect is almost poetic. At others, it builds a bridge to my own childhood houses, my father and my grandparen ...more

“When a relationship hits a crisis, the natural response is to try to fix it as quickly as possible. But in the panic, it is very easy to get confused about the true nature of the problems and head off in the wrong direction. So the first step is to truly understand.”
Andrew G. Marshall, I Love You, but I'm Not IN Love with You: Seven Steps to Saving Your Relationship

“22 How would you describe your sexual relationship? 23 What would you like to happen right now? 24 How would you like your life to be in the future? Make the answer as detailed as possible. Where would you be living? What would you be doing? What would the house look like? Who else is there? 25 How might you be able to make this happen? Interpreting your answers: 1 This question is checking whether there is a general background of unhappiness.”
Andrew G. Marshall, I Love You but I'm Not in Love with You: Seven Steps to Saving Your Relationship

“Men always say that as the defining compliment, don’t they? She’s a cool girl. Being the Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she’s hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. Go ahead, shit on me, I don’t mind, I’m the Cool Girl.

Men actually think this girl exists. Maybe they’re fooled because so many women are willing to pretend to be this girl. For a long time Cool Girl offended me. I used to see men – friends, coworkers, strangers – giddy over these awful pretender women, and I’d want to sit these men down and calmly say: You are not dating a woman, you are dating a woman who has watched too many movies written by socially awkward men who’d like to believe that this kind of woman exists and might kiss them. I’d want to grab the poor guy by his lapels or messenger bag and say: The bitch doesn’t really love chili dogs that much – no one loves chili dogs that much! And the Cool Girls are even more pathetic: They’re not even pretending to be the woman they want to be, they’re pretending to be the woman a man wants them to be. Oh, and if you’re not a Cool Girl, I beg you not to believe that your man doesn’t want the Cool Girl. It may be a slightly different version – maybe he’s a vegetarian, so Cool Girl loves seitan and is great with dogs; or maybe he’s a hipster artist, so Cool Girl is a tattooed, bespectacled nerd who loves comics. There are variations to the window dressing, but believe me, he wants Cool Girl, who is basically the girl who likes every fucking thing he likes and doesn’t ever complain. (How do you know you’re not Cool Girl? Because he says things like: “I like strong women.” If he says that to you, he will at some point fuck someone else. Because “I like strong women” is code for “I hate strong women.”)”
Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

“We all spend so much time worrying about the future that the present moment slips right out of our hands. And so all we have left is retrospection and anticipation, retrospection and anticipation. In which case what's left to recall but past anticipation? What's left to anticipate but future retrospection?”
David Leavitt, The Two Hotel Francforts

“The angry person is acutely sensitive to all they are owed by the world, and blind to all they have received”
Jules Evans, Philosophy for Life: And Other Dangerous Situations
