This is a Good Book Thursday, December 3, 2020

I read Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall, and it was really, really good. If you liked Red, White, and Royal Blue, this is that with more edge. Plus funny as hell. Now reading Wild and Crazy Guys by Nick de Semiyen, a book about comedy in the 80s (all male) to be followed by a palate cleanser, Pretty Funny: Women Comedians and Body Politics, by Linda Mizejewski who I just realized was on my PhD general exams committee, something I’m sure she forgot immediately.

Then probably a re-read of Regina Barreca’s They Used To Call Me Snow White But I Drifted, Women’s Strategic Use of Humor. I learned a lot from that book, time to review. Oh, and I read If You Ask Me, one of Betty White’s memoirs, more of a stream of consciousness thing that was like a nice chat. Very good to read before bed.
