been asked to blurb as a verb some interesting stuff in like, the past 2 months. this poetry book by sara sutterlin is being released by a cool press: electric cereal. and i really enjoyed it.
this book, The Other Woman which i still have to write my blurb for and which blew. my. mind. the title is kind of lame and that’s because it is translated from german, but anyway READ THIS BOOK when it publishes in february. i didn’t leave my apartment for two days and just read. it is intoxicating and smart.
now for the real fun. i was also sent a copy of this book, Irrelationship. once i got over the shock of being thought of for a book like this (would love to know how they thought of me/found me for this one), i actually tried to read it, and i swear, it made no sense. like, it was poorly written and robotic and dumb. so i can’t do it. unfortunately, cause i was looking for tips. i am not above self help books, i love them. but this one kind of blew.
but not i must be on some kind of self help spam galley list or something cause i was also asked to blurb this. i said sure, send me one (love free books) but now they claim they have none left.
