Re: “Girl Gone Wild

I would suggest to Allison to consider, at least, the legitimate use of farce as a construct to pull off serious cultural criticism. By poking fun and using outrageous exaggertion as a device, farce is a viable form of serious literature. I fully own that I don't have degree in literature and I am not of academia. I just know to look further when someone like Yuknavitch writes. She is deliberate and an expert at weaving multiple meanings into her work that teach, inform and transform the reader without knowing they are being transformed until after its all over. I am trying to reserve my own snark, because I want my observations to be taken seriously, but really? It must be either arrogance or some external factor that shrugged this review into existence, because I can not believe there was any serious thought that went into this. I hope these comments on this review are actually helpful to you, Allison, and you consider a deeper, more informed look at the books you review in the future.
With compassion,
Domi J. Shoemaker

Just as a note, Chunky Dunk is not "free." We have a $5 suggested donation, but nobody is turned away for inability to pay. Thank you for the awesome blog post!
