This book was one the NYPL's "365 books by female authors" list.

If you start this at p119, and read all the stories until the end, you might give this 3 or 4 stars. I read for the beginning and already hated it by p119. Too bad, because the stories

I loved the first half, but the second half didn't work for me. Still worth reading though.

This book was a much easier to read than "Tears We Cannot Stop; a sermon to white America", but the same points were made. I think people forget that while bad fiction is a waste of time, good fiction can teach as much as non-fiction. I was behind in ...more

The Flick by Annie Baker

I read this, so I have no idea how it would translate to the theater. I found it to be a short, entertaining read. I recognized the characters from my high school days of employment in movie theaters and video stores, and from my current life, where ...more

Ballad of the Black and Blue Mind by Anne Roiphe

Clear rating
This is probably a two star for me, but I couldn't help feeling like I would want to recommend this book to all the therapists in my family, just so we could discuss it. Maybe I just mean my dad, because he would humor me, but it would make good conv ...more

This isn't a book you forget. For one thing,I fell in love with the beginning. I thought I had never read anything more perfect. A scholarly look at Labrynth! It was hard for me to believe that I abandoned Melissa's first book, "Whip Smart", after re ...more
