It’s a crying shame if you haven’t; I read it years and years and years (ok, I’ll stop now) ago, and it’s one of the most-beloved books in my collection.
What a cast of characters.
The genius writer brother; the gun-crazy brother; the beauty- and romance-obsessed sister; the fiercely protective Greek Man Friday; and the food-obsessed and long-suffering mother (or Mother, as she’s referred to).
Not to mention a whole host of plants, insects and animals.
It’s a great book, not just because it’s hilarious, but because it’s wonderfully evocative and, despite the crazy antics described, clearly a loving depiction of an unusual family.
All of which is not to say
any of the writers highlighted below are crazy, gun-obsessed or long-suffering (actually, they might be long-suffering, but I have no way of knowing that).
But they’re all great, and they’re starting to feel like a family to me.
Do go have a read.
Why: with a headline like that, you think I was going to pass it up?
Why: even though I plan not to watch the Super Bowl, Davina might make me change my mind.
Why: I don’t know why we need to quibble over these things, and I liked Maggie’s answer.
Why: the thing I like so much about Lee is that not only does he know so much, he shares so freely.
Why: I haven’t come to terms with Quora myself, so it made me feel better that Bill – who is no dumb ass – hasn’t either. Plus it’s a great read.
Why: I’ll give you a hint: three reasons in the headline, and the fourth is the author, whom I â™¥ big time.
Why: I trust Paul. That’s why I read him. You should too.
