“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
--Audre Lorde

Early August

Submitted by alycia on Thu, 08/08/2013 - 13:40
  • Finished The Flame Alphabet. Somewhere along the way, I thought I'd gotten a whiff that this book had a twist ending. There I was, reading along, anticipating something startling, and the book ended. It definitely kept me going faster than it would have otherwise without this inaccurate info, but also may have made it into something different as a reader. Not that the book isn't surprising--it's just that twist is not really what it contains. Now I'm waiting for Cronenberg to make a movie out of it. Or at least certain parts.
  • Still reading and enjoying Doing Recent History, which is also interesting for its portions about archives and privacy--from a researcher's, not a curator/collector/preservationist's perspective.
