In My Mailbox (Week 2)
THE 4-HOUR WORKWEEK has been heralded by many as the game-changing career book of its time. I thought, why not? If this book really promises maximum efficiency, that would change everything--in between managing TWFT, being an editor at a non-profit literary journal, being founder/editor-in-chief of another non-profit literary journal, finishing art/writing/music portfolios, and just being a teenager, God knows I need all the extra time I can get. Also, school's right around the corner...I just got mail yesterday telling me to pick up my school schedule soon (yikes!). Will review soon.
BINOCULAR VISION is a collection of short stories I actually was assigned to read for work. (Ahh, when the line between work and personal life disappears!) And let me tell you, Edith Pearlman, so far, has proved to be a writer of stunning, surprising short stories. I can't even pick a favorite, because I love all of them and a good majority I count as my "favorite." This was the same book, by the way, that catapulted Edith Pearlman from being a quietly-respected writer to an "instant" hit.
