One Reality Television Addict’s Attempt to Discover If Not Being A Dumb Ass Is the New Black, Or a Culture-Up Manifesto
by Jen Lancaster
If you are wondering why the numbers of these posts sometimes don’t appear in order, it’s because I read a lot of books long before they are released and I schedule the posts closer to the publication date. So, there you go.
I don’t really need to tell you that I loved this book, because I have loved every book she’s written and I’m sure that I will love whatever she writes next. So, there you go.
In this one, Lancaster finds that all of her reality tv watching may have left her a little lacking in knowledge of all things cultural. So she sets off to smarten herself up. Her plan is to read classic literature, attend dance performances and the opera, learn about wine pairings (an act that involves dragging along her poor husband), and eating the World (sampling cuisine from different countries). All this has to happen while writing her next book, embarking on a book tour for her current book, moving to a new house when mold threatens to take over the old one, dealing with the illnesses of her pets, and adopting 3 feral kittens. Does that sound funny?
It is. So, there you go.
