Four suicidal strangers meet at a popular suicide spot on New Year's Eve, each with the intent to jump, and their lives are changed by the chance meeting. A heavy subject is dealt with in a very comical way. This would be an awesome...and pretty profound...movie.
Zadie Smith: White Teeth
Stopped just past half...
I'm taking a break from this one. I'm halfway through it and am not enjoying the reading as much as I like to. Very challenging--a good thing-- as I said earlier, but I do need a break. I'm retiring it to my nightstand to finish bit by bit at night before bed.
Julie Orringer: How to Breathe Underwater: Stories
I'm an instant fan. Brilliant writer.
Lauren Weisberger: The Devil Wears Prada: A Novel
Loved it! Can't wait to see the movie.
Zane: The Sex Chronicles : Shattering the Myth
I really didn't read this one cover to cover. Only read the first 4 or 5 stories. I thought I was grown, y'all, but I'm still a baby. I couldn't finish this one.
Tayari Jones: The Untelling
The author's publicist is a fan of my blog and sent me a copy, which she predicted I'd enjoy. She was so right. It took me forever to finish because I've been very preoccupied with my life this year. I'm positive no story has ever affected me as much as this one. I'm affected and changed by having read this novel.
What she said.

I wanted to be her...minus the narcotics. She was so glamorous and beautiful. And Billy D. Williams is the man! Interestingly, my hisband's name is Billy D. Hmmm.
