I love hearing an author read his own work, and with his experience in theater, Ayad Akhtar does a splendid job, adding so much to the written word.
One of the striking things about this book is that it feels like really new - and important - territory for an American novel.
highly recommended! If you care about the American novel, you don't want to miss this.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who thought that because it was promoted on WWDTM, there would be some substance, and insight, in this book. There is none. There is also no story, no arc, nothing even approaching the early awareness of a teenage girl's first journal. This is merely a collection of daily lists: of names, restaurants, and geography. It is painful to listen to this drivel.
had just a modicum of self-awareness. I'm guessing someone else titled it.
I may never forgive Peter Sagal.
