Just Good Shit: 07.28.19
It’s a light/late one this week! I didn’t have much time for Internet this week, and I spent the entire day today at Jacob Riis. (It was lovely!) Here’s what I’ve got for you…
I re-read Valley of the Dolls, as planned! And I’m currently reading The Island by Elin Hildebrand. I’m really enjoying reading so many books by a single author in a row like this…it sort of reminds me of reading The Baby-Sitters’ Club books when I was younger — like you see all the little quirks and consistencies across the books. (In Hildebrand’s case, there are a lot of Sancerres and Asiatic lilies, for starters.)
The Crane Wife, The Paris Review.
“There is nothing more humiliating to me than my own desires. Nothing that makes me hate myself more than being burdensome and less than self-sufficient. I did not want to feel like the kind of nagging woman who might exist in a sit-com.” This essay really is as good as everyone has been saying it is.
A woman's greatest enemy? A lack of time to herself, The Guardian.
What Big Little Lies Got Wrong About Bonnie, The Atlantic.
Why Has Language Changed So Much So Fast? ‘Because Internet’, The New York Times.
Very excited to read this book.
Why I Always Spend 20 Minutes In The Bathroom When I Get Home, Apartment Therapy.
Have a great Sunday! 🌊
