I have to say that my reading last month lagged a bit due to the launch of my manuscript into daylight, but I did listen to a few audiobooks. This was a new experience for me…and I loved it! I bored my husband on the way down to St. Louis with my Jane Lynch autobiography, but for a girl who gets car sick, audiobooks are way better than dramamine.
My favorite read for the month was Dan Zevin’s ‘Dan Gets a Minivan: Life at the Intersection between Dude and Dad.” Not young adult. Not fiction. But very very funny for any parent. He narrates the audiobook himself and his impressions of his Jersey Jewish mother are to die for. His humor is categorized as “Seinfeldian” – so he talks a lot about nothing. My kind of guy.
I also read J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye for the very first time (gasp!). I liked it but did not love it. Does that make me a bad person?
