I got a press release today for a new song called "F--- My Face." Apparently there is a clean version and a dirty version. How could there be a clean version of F--- My Face?
Summary: Not easy to live your life when you feel a girl apart and found the hypocritical world.
Constantly disappointed and tired to ask a thousand questions, Carrie is definitely much refuge under his blanket. However, a secret voice whispers to give a second chance ... by throwing a few challenges. Notably, "Making an important meeting" and "Saying 'I love you" to someone "...
My opinion: This is a book in which he generally does not happen much and which can easily take heroin flu ... But it is also a book that gives cause for reflection on oneself.
Carrie asks a lot (too) questions. Carrie has one side a bit pedantic: as with a High IQ more than average, it tends to find "normal" people are uninteresting. It is the sort who quickly judge people just on her looks. What logically force a loneliness that weighs more. Especially since Carrie is way ahead of his age: not even 19 she is already graduated from Harvard. Some find it unbelievable, it is actually difficult to live.
Sure, that's no excuse any lack of Carrie, her haughty side to the other, but I was sorry for her. Especially when she shares with us his reflections on life and our scoiété. She knows that she considers too quickly and too easily, it would make an effort, but too often it has taken bowls. Obviously it hardens. The loneliness that besets is also a way to escape it all.
But this is not the solution to everything. We follow its evolution and development during a period of several weeks. She learned to reach out to others, to accept them as they are and to gain acceptance of them.
Each meeting is a milestone in its progress and its importance for the rest of the route. Even if sometimes we say "roh but a lucky chance anyway!" I thought it was pretty well done.
This brings us to a final, simple, a little short perhaps, but to me much. It is an end "security blanket" that makes you want to shake his book as one would press a teddy bear!
In short, far from the chick-bed that could be expected, it is a book about the difficult access to the adult world of a young lady like no other, and yet one that may restrict attach and even identify with. I liked: o)
My rating: 9 / 10
Life (not) very cool Pilby Carrie (French Amazon link)
Baby is still doing well in my tummy, thankfully. We are starting to play some music for him to enjoy.
I finally got the rest of my Carrie Pilby press releases out via regular mail, since it comes out July 1. Glad to get that out of the way.
We're going to a minor league baseball game soon. Always a fun experience to go to these little pockets of America.
Actually to players, too, if they kick into the wrong team's goal and get murdered for it.
I know I can't blame a sport for the actions of its fans, but this one seems to stir some strong feelings.
Oh well, I am glad our version of football doesn't stir those feelings...okay, except maybe on Super Bowl Sunday when it leads to (according to statistics) domestic issues.
Some worthy items from the Book Expo of America
Another four books by Jennifer Weiner, again to Greer Hendricks at Atria, for publication once a year, by Joanna Pulcini of Joanna Joanna Pulcini Literary Management (world).
I have to write about some things I saw at the Book Expo of America, and also my reaction to the Sex and the City movie (no spoilers).
Baby was moving around a lot during the movie. Could be that he liked it. Could be that he hated it. But the truth is, I think it had to do with the grape syrup in my Icee.
Actually no one says that, but anyway, this tidbit was in Publisher's Lunch today:
ICM agent Esther Newberg told the NY Post she is "lying in wait for the moment when I can get back at" Andrew Wylie after he tried to poach a client from another ICM agent recently. Speaking about the ridiculous supposed nickname for Wylie "The Jackal," used almost exclusively by the UK press rather than anyone in the business, Newberg told Pia Lindstrom in a Sirius radio interview that "I think I gave him that."
I feel a reality show coming on.
