David Sedaris'in yazdığı her şey bence altın. Kitaplarından hiç biri sık sık beni güldürmek için başarısız oldu. Sevecen uygunsuzluk resimlerini boyamak ve genel olarak hepsi doğru olan ya da olmayan çirkin hikayeler anlatmakta harikadır. Ayrıca sizi en iyi komedi yazarlarının bazılarına atfediyorum bir beceri olan şiirselliği ile şaşırtmayı da başardı.
Onu sevdim. Bu iki kitap serisini Covenant serisinden daha çok sevdim. Donaldson'ın yazdığı en iyi dizi bence.
Bu iyi. : D
Harika bir kitap ... çok komik bir yazar
This is the second book of the Julie & Julia movie - or first, I suppose. I read it second. (I am glad I saw the movie first, though because it is one of two movies from a book that I did not immediately think "oh, the book is better" and I probably wouldn't have seen it had I read first, which would have been a shame because the movie is very good). Very different from My Life in France, but as much a story about a journey of the soul as Julia Child's. The movie is much kinder to Julie than she is, but I loved her story more because she was so much less perfect in her book. I was as fascinated with her husband as I was with Julia's - Eric was not as mysterious as Paul, but equally amazing. I could NOT have lived in the apartment she describes and that she managed to with the humor she presents...well, miraculous or insane, not sure which. There were moments when I could tell she loved cooking, moments when I could tell she was happy, but not many. The cooking was almost desperate - miraculously insane to stay up until 11pm to have dinner simply to have managed another recipe. Perhaps if she had had the time and space afforded Julia Child, cooking would have been a delight. Far easier to love cooking if you can spend your morning strolling through the markets, your afternoons creating and if you have someone available to clean up for you. Not a criticism of Julia Child - I am as in love with her as Julie Powell is/was. The books have some interesting political parallels - Julie works for a Republican administration after 9/11; Julia experienced a Republican administration - and was tormented by it - after WWII. My favorite sections are when she is in love with cooking and her husband and you can tell she is considering being in love with herself. I also identified with her mother - a physical presence in the book, not just a voice - because it is SO difficult to see your children hurting in this way. You either become silent or naggy (I tend toward naggy, I'm told), desperately wanting to fix the situation like you could when they were little and knowing you can't.
