Literacy and Longing in L. A.

Literacy and Longing in L.A. - Jennifer Kaufman, Karen    Mack "I collect new books the way my girlfriends buy designer handbags."Despite a main character who could be construed as a kindred spirit, this book disappointed me. The blurb on the back described the plot as that of a woman who deals with the problems of her life by going on a book reading binge. Okay. Excellent strategy. And the authors (Why are there two? Two authors concerns me.) tossed into the story every wonderful book title, every wonderful book quote, every wonderful author...but it wasn't enough. A stew of things obsessive readers love, but it wasn't enough. The book still read like a rough draft. Disappointing.
