Book Binge

“The battle for self-esteem is a hard won victory, because as humans we tend to err on the side of self-loathing, but winning this war is the only way we can survive.”         ~Margaret Cho

 …Well in an attempt to stop watching all the trashy reality TV that I secretly like (note: I WILL stop watching the Hills), I’ve been on a book binge…  This week I’ve finished:

1.  Margaret Cho autobiography 

2. The High Price of Materialism by: Tim Kasser

3.  The Selected Letters of Jack Kerouac — (what a life!)

4. The Opposite of Love by: Julie Buxbaum

Can’t wait for:

–  No Man’s Land by: Ruth Fowler (Out June 19th!)

No Man’s Land is a fearless exploration of the murky territory where eroticism and commerce collide. Fowler has lived, scrutinized, and offered up a serious first person narrative of sex and desire, representation and identity, and the perversion of female power. She has refused to play by the rules that govern both life and stories, opting instead to test the edge of her experience and then to write it, honestly and unsparingly. The result is a work that is both courageous and outrageous. In a world where pole dancing is marketed as empowerment, this relentlessly candid book comes as a welcome slap.”
