I write about things and people pay me millions of dollars. I know.
Jane Austen was Regency!
I thought the book was very careful and Madeleine bordered on precious. I feel like the difference between Austen's privileged characters, and Eugenides, is that Austen always gave them a bit of a spine. If they were simpering layabouts then they weren't the protagonists. I felt there were moments when Madeleine was that. She was just a bit too soft to play the lead. Maybe she needed a bit of Flannery O'Conner (Southern Gothic!) added to her.
You totally put those flowers on the counter. I KNOW YOUR PHOTOSTAGING WAYS, KRAZYBEE.
I approve of the idea of this post.
Yes, but are any of these people from Portland? There's something really wonderful about hearing from non-celebrity Portlanders.
I call Portland Celebrities "Importland." Because I'm clever like that.
I too have a crush on Glen David Gold.
I liked Rachel Cusk's Last Supper. And I know that this book came out a few years ago, but Didion's Year of Magical Thinking was my favorite book I read this year. Amazing.
Great artcile, Marjorie! We're so excited for the event tonight!
Skank is so underused lately. I'm going to make an effort to use it more today.
In print of course, so no one can sue me.
