How Should a Person Be?
Jun 30, 2012
This was a very interesting books. There are countless brilliant lines that delighted me to no end. I was mostly struck by how damn funny this book was in really smart, subtle ways. I knew I was loving this book when I kept catching myself laughing out loud. There are parts of the book that baffled me--pages of philosophical exegesis that felt rather baffling and somewhat out of step with the book, but the heart of this book is about female friendship and the centrality of it, the importance of it. When the book focuses on the tension of the relationship between Sheila and Margaux, How Should a Person Be truly soars. The chapter, an Interlude About Fucking (or something along those lines), is also about as perfect a book chapter as there can be because of the utter... baseness of it. I'm glad I ended up reading this.
