Triteness and Boringness: "Cover Her Face” by P. D. James
Cover Her Face - P.D. James


“The cultured cop! I thought they were peculiar to detective novels.”

In “Cover Her Face” by P. D. James


Sometimes people just like to talk about the books they're reading. Not boast. Just talk. I realise such plebeian behaviour may not be acceptable in the rarefied circles some people move in, but for the rest of us mere mortals it happens quite a lot. Given that reading is becoming less and less common, one would think you'd be happy people are reading at all, without feeling the need to bitch about the fact that they happened to have enjoyed something so much they might want to read it again. Unless you think reading should just be restricted to the real intelligentsia, among whom some people obviously count themselves. So, unless those people have evidence that re-reading causes cancer or blows up the WC, why not back off and let the rest of us do what we like. Or better, why not direct that scathing anger at something that really matters? "Oh, I'm re-reading ‘Cover Her Face’.” Yes, there are people who like to brag about re-reading the Shakespeare plays, but most of us are just trying to be accurate. If you say, "I'm reading such-and-such," people assume you mean "reading for the first time.

This is just my face
This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare - Gabourey Sidibe

I apparently have a lot in common with Gabourey. I, too, have crippling anxiety, depression, had bariatric surgery, recovered from an eating disorder, and went through my parents' divorce. I'm also too funny for my own good and tend to offend others with my humor.

 

Read this book. She's THE BOMB, to quote Obama.

This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare - Gabourey Sidibe

So she got called a fat black bitch. And she says yes, I am fat. Yes, I am black. Yes, I am a bitch. But no, it's not okay for you to call me those things. Except for the black part, I can completely relate. I'm hefty, I'm snarky. I know this. No, you cannot call me anything. I will punch you.
