Good grief. Get over yourself.
on July 31, 2013
As an Akrnoite and a lover of women writers I was excited to read this book. Good grief. Name drop, tragic female writers, poor me, crap on Akron, name drop, pretentious drivel, poor me, Europe, tragic female writers, crap on Akron, poor me, more drivel.
I don't think my fellow mid-westerners were staring at her cropped hair or leather jacket. That is nothing new around here. I am sure people tried to welcome her. Mid westerners, and Akronites in particular are a very welcoming group. Her personality is what soured her time in Akron. Her pretentious, I'm better than everyone attitude soured her time in Akron. You know what is not to blame? It's not Akron's rundown factories or her neighbor's dog or the people who kindly invited her over for Thanksgiving.
I am furious I wasted my time on this - precious time I'll never get back. Puke. I'm glad they freakin' left.
