Editorial Reviews

Review

"[T]he first book I've ever read that truly represents the strangely compelling way people reveal themselves, in writing, on the Internet."—Jay Gabler, Twin Cities Daily Planet

"With her mixture of immediate honesty and everyman wit, Boyle has emerged as a cult voice of Millennials whom have come of age sharing confessional writing online."—Kelley Hoffman, Elle

"I was surprised to discover in Megan's book that she's slept with a few women [...] She has dark hair and is funny and does stuff with her life, so right away she skyrockets above most people who are wading around in the dating pool of life."—Kelly McClure, Vice

It's very minimalistic as well.

I think the most important quality of Megan Boyle's writing is that she's observant.

Format: Paperback
It didn't give me the sort of angry disefranchisement over 'trying-too-hard' that I get when I read a lot of 'alt-lit' stuff. It's the only book in Muumuhouse's store labeled as prose, but it felt like poetry to me.

I think the most important quality of Megan Boyle's writing is that she's observant. Anyone can be in a room and transcribe their thoughts, then call that poetry, then call that 'alt-lit', then call that 'something worth reading', but there's a distinguishing quality in this book that I really enjoyed. It did feel sort of like the internet literally translated into a physical medium, but I sort of liked that. The only difference between the internet and books is the delivery mechanism. When you hold something in your hand, it feels more tangible, mostly because it is, literally.

Anyway. This book was good. I'd recommend it. I felt a vague sense of sadness upon completing it because I wanted to read more. I feel like it could go on forever, or at least until the author dies. It probably will, in some sense.

This book as a kind of unforced deconstruction of certain "first world lol" ideas and societal constructions about gender, body, media, consumerism etc. A neat (maybe challenging for some) read for those who want/need this type of prose/poetry/new-poetry/new or "alt" lit? I have found myself going from squeamish to deep personal understanding to laughing out loud all on the same few pages.
I am a follower of M Boyle's writing on the various web locations, and am eagerly waiting for her to produce another "artifact of hand & shelf"? I am looking forward to re-reading this book in forty years and quietly smiling at our 2k millennium newnesses.

This is so good. I read it twice this weekend. And I'll probably read it again. You suck for writing something so good. I wanted to write this first. UGH.

Format: Paperback
I don't really want to say that I'm obsessed with this book, but I think I'm obsessed with this book. First of all, I don't know s*** about poetry, but this didn't feel like poetry. The book is like a diary. Some of the entries are just random, stream of consciousness statements. Some of the entries are more focused like "everyone i've had sex with" (published on thought catalog first, if you want a taste).

All of her statements are (mostly) funny, confessional, true, insightful, and surprising. It's like a collection of unrelated things that sum up to what it's like to be a 20-something. Some of the "posts" are really thoughtful, and some are more boring, unimportant details and thoughts of her life. But they're all thrilling to hear, because it's like looking into the deepest recesses of someone's mind. Honestly almost every page was bookmarked because I liked something on it. What I like about Megan Boyle's writing is how open she is. Not just in that she will say things that people may not normally share (or know how to put into words), but that it's all simply stated and clear. Her voice is mesmerizing and hard not to love entirely. It's very relatable, but that also makes some parts of the experience reading this difficult. Though she is funny and genuine, some of the things she says are troubling. Like many 20-somethings, she is disaffected and lost to an extent. Overly curious, self-aware, and depressed. It's hard to see her like that and see her talk about it so bluntly, because it's hard to see some of those things in myself. But I'm glad she was the one who made me look. And she made me feel hopeful.

I read this in July and it took me a while to review it, because I wasn't really sure how to do it justice. While reading it, I kept forcing people to read pages of it that I liked. After reading it, I kept trying to force it on other people. This is me virtually trying to force it on to you, because I think it's worth the time.

I enjoyed the raw, honest vulnerability of Megan. She expresses thoughts that seem to come from a personally familiar perception or frame of mind. At times, the I-don't-give-a-s***, conversational prose — with no commas or capital letters — can become a bit annoying, but, just as you're about the put it down and reach for a cigarette, Megan comes through and says something uniquely sincere that, in a strange way, satisfies a craving. We live in a time where writers feel the need to be ironically humorous hipsters and while Megan sometimes uses those notions as comic relief, her writing is refreshingly truthful. I'll be excited to read what she does next.

I'm not quite done with this book but so far so good. Usually these books bore me, not so much a fan of Tao Lin, but this seems more relatable and comprehensive.
