  • I Don’t Care about Your Band: What I Learned from Indie Rockers, Trust Funders, Pornographers, Felons, Faux-Sensitive Hipsters, and Other Guys I’ve Dated

    Story
    (145)

    In the tradition of Cynthia Heimel and Chelsea Handler, and with the boisterous iconoclasm of Amy Sedaris, Julie Klausner's candid and funny debut I Don't Care about Your Band sheds light on the humiliations we endure to find love - and the lessons that can be culled from the wreckage. I Don't Care about Your Band posits that lately the worst guys to date are the ones who seem sensitive. It's the jerks in nice guy clothing, not the players in Ed Hardy, who break the hearts of modern girls.

    Would you try another book from Julie Klausner and/or Julie Klausner?

    Mabye


    Would you ever listen to anything by Julie Klausner again?

    She reads well. I'm sure she can tell a good story.


    Have you listened to any of Julie Klausner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from I Don’t Care about Your Band?

    The vulgar parts.


    Any additional comments?

    I think it's a generational thing. I don't relate to this particualr context. Maybe the 25 to 35 would relate better. Also, if I wanted to hear the vulgar words to describe the acts of sex, I would have read erotica. I just cringed when out of nowhere I'd get hit by something

  • Paris in Love: A Memoir

    Story
    (42)

    In 2009 Eloisa James took a leap that many people dream about: She sold her house, took a sabbatical from her job, and moved her family to Paris. Paris in Love: A Memoir chronicles her joyful year in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. With no classes to teach, no committee meetings to attend, no lawn to mow, Eloisa revels in the ordinary pleasures of life - discovering corner museums that tourists overlook, chronicling Frenchwomen’s sartorial triumphs, walking from one end of Paris to another.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Paris in Love to be better than the print version?

    Don't know, perhaps yes because I don't have to assume the tone voice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The level of detail. There was one little story in particular where the author described the rain down the groves of the grey wall and how they hit the ground in white. I had to pause the story at that point and re-listen. The words were so beautifully descriptive.


    What about Eloisa James’s performance did you like?

    I liked that it wasn't just a story from Point A to Point B. There wasn't a worked out plot... It' was just a collection of observations that reminds us that life is in the little things.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The part about the rain, see above.


    Any additional comments?

    I've never read her novels before. The memoir was just beautiful to me. It was life, as it happens.
