KUDOS: Like DEAD LETTERS, But On Menopause

Chortling with glee, self reads:

  • “I’m stifling. It’s probably the menopause,” she said, and made quotation marks in the air with her fingers: “Ice melts as woman writer overheats . . . I’ve been on tour so long I’m starting to pass through the stages of ageing . . . My face hurts from having to smile all the time. I’ve eaten all the weird food and now this dress is the only thing I can fit into. I’ve worn it so many times it’s become like my apartment.” — Kudos, p. 46

Self loves this novel so much. If she hadn’t read Jamaica Inn first, she might have chosen this as her Favorite Novel Read In 2018.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

KUDOS: Hilarity

She talked about a reading she had done in New York with a well-known novelist. They had agreed beforehand how the reading would go, but when they got on stage the novelist announced to the audience that instead of reading they were going to sing. The audience went wild for the idea and the novelist stood up and sang.

Kudos, p. 44
