Worthy of the Week

Things have been a little rough around here lately, so I’m going to take a bit of a blogging break. See you soon!

Worthy of the Week

Book of the Week

I’m going to need someone to explain the cultural relevance of Fear of Flying to me. I lasted 100 pages before I couldn’t take any more of the vapid Isadora Wing. (Edit: Interestingly enough, this article was just published in the New York Times.)

So I moved on to something much more highbrow. China Rich Girlfriend.

Don’t judge me.

What are you reading?

  1. Wow, Fear of Flying is more than forty years old and was probably twenty years old when I read it. I haven’t picked it up recently, but what I remember most was the message of female empowerment in work and in sex, a needed message in the 70’s still relevant in the 90’s and, I would think, today. I do remember dated/seemingly irrelevant culture elements and that I didn’t necessarily like the character Isadora but was curious to see what (or who) she’d do next. I saw the NYT piece on Fear of Dying and decided to read it; we’ll see if that makes me want to revisit Fear of Flying. I recently read Judy Blume’s In the Unlikely Event and mildly enjoyed it, possibly more from a place of nostalgia than on it’s own merit. A recent read that I really recommend is The Rocks by Peter Nichols. I read it after I returned from a vacation, but it felt like a great summer read.
    Hope your time away from blogging is exactly what you need to recharge. Looking forward to reading your future posts. Best wishes to you!
