I love Ted Kooser’s book Valentines & this day always reminds me of one of the least obviously romantic poems in the book, “New Potato”:      fuente

@mywingman_84 So cool that this book is a) warm & b) has a deep, wild "mom" character. Feels like an elbow-throw after Freedom and Purity, a demonstration that he can do the exact stuff some critics (including me) found wanting.      fuente

Audience of One book cover
Audience of One
Donald Trump, Television, and the Fracturing of America
James Poniewozik - 2019-09-10
Calificación de Goodreads
Audience of One by James Poniewozik delves into the history of television and its role in shaping American society and politics, ultimately leading to the election of Donald J. Trump. Poniewozik interweaves two crucial stories, tracing the evolution of television from the shared monoculture era to today's atomized universe, and a cultural critique of the president. He reveals how Trump became a character that wrote itself and rode the media beast to ultimate power. A penetrating and often hilarious review of the farcical reality show we have all come to live in, Audience of One is a sobering reflection on the intersection of politics and pop culture.

La amiga estupenda book cover
La amiga estupenda
Neapolitan Novels, Book One
Elena Ferrante - 2012-09-25 (publicado por primera vez en 2011)
Calificación de Goodreads
Con La amiga estupenda, Elena Ferrante inaugura una tetralogia deslumbrante que tiene como telón de fondo la ciudad de Nápoles a mediados del siglo pasado y como protagonistas a Lenù y Lila, dos jóvenes mujeres que están aprendiendo a gobernar su vida en un entorno donde la astucia, antes que la inteligencia, es el ingrediente de todas las salsas. La relación a menudo tempestuosa entre Lila y Lenù viene acompañada de un coro de voces que dan cuerpo a su historia y nos muestran la realidad de un barrio pobre, habitado por gente humilde que acata sin rechistar la ley del más fuerte, pero La amiga estupenda está lejos del realismo social: lo que aquí tenemos son unos personajes de carne y hueso, que nos intrigan y nos deslumbran por la fuerza y la urgencia de sus emociones. Por primera vez Ferrante aborda una narración muy amplia, poniendo en escena un verdadero tableau vivant donde no hay espacio para el tópico: todo es vida y todo respira al hilo de la mejor literatura. «El reto para quien escribe es llenar la distancia entre lo que vives y lo que cuentas, sentir físicamente el impacto de la narración…».-Elena Ferrante

I was enjoying My Brilliant Friend (the book) only mezzo mezzo until I got to the final line, which snapped me to attention and made me love it. I've never had that experience with a book before.      fuente

From Dorothy Parker to Joan Didion, Michelle Dean delves into the lives and writings of these brilliant women, examining how they cut through the cultural and intellectual history of America with their precision of thought and wit.
