i put this on hold!! i’m so pumped about it!! this is my field!! also doesn’t this cover look very “i am publishing this from the department more or less founded by susan gubar" which is literally true about it. i hadn’t thought about the iu ~legacy in feminist criticism for a while but now i am tying that history to the history of gender scholarship land grand traditions (re: home economics and extension). this book is probably going to be good though because it is by a woman cabinetmaker.
anyway does anybody have a copy of alan gowans’s the comfortable house they want to gift me, i keep having to get it via interlibrary loan and getting late fines and i am never done with it and
"in district 8 they make clothes for people in the capitol to wear" EIGHTH GRADERS. THIS IS A LESSON FOR EIGHTH GRADERS.
The people of District 12 apparently love their fiber arts. It’s because they’re real, authentic people, unlike the phony-baloneys from the Capitol, who wear clothes made by sad computers or whatever. [x]
okay the internet knitting community did legitimately freak out about this one because it’s actually a clever piece of fabric. it was frankened/reverse-engineered (in both knit and crochet) within a week of the movie premiere and duplicates are selling for $130 on ebay.
omg dystopian knitwear is one of my favorite topics
sorry this line is fucking stupid, like, the whole point of the book is that the production of the capitol is labor performed by actual people who don’t live in the capitol, including clothes, like?? there’s a whole district for that? it was written for teenagers and children to be like “oh, i see what they are saying about how stuff is made, like in real life.” like it’s made for children to be able to figure it out. jesus lord.
I think Jess has tagged me in those 10 book things a few times over the course of things now. I don’t know how to talk about books! Books don’t stay with me. Books are the first thing you should abandon. When I was an adolescent I read a lot of FLB (my favorite was Girl Goddess #9 and I think it’s the only one that might potentially hold up in some places, and maybe Rose and the Beast), 1984, Salinger (I would say now my favorite is Franny and Zooey obviously but I don’t at this instant imagine myself ever reading it again), I read a lot of Stephen King when I needed to, and I still do, mainly I like short stories. Tons and tons of adult Judy Blume. I hope I never read Forever again but I read it a million times then, I still love Summer Sisters more than most of my family members and it’s a great book. The Five Minute Iliad stays with me. In eleventh grade my favorite books were Beloved and some by Kurt Vonnegut, I don’t remember what I was reading then.
My favorite book since I read it maybe six years ago is The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. The rest of my favorite books of adulthood, I guess, are Flowers in the Attic and its sequels (My Sweet Audrina remains the best but I guess that was more the favorite of my childhood.) The Hunger Games trilogy. The Bloody Chamber. Louise Erdrich’s short stories but mainly The Round House. Maus. Most of the last best books I read were french, Fatou Diome’s La preference nationale and Gisele Pineau’s Un papillon dans la cite. I loved Richard Kim’s Lost Names. I actually really love Lolita if you wanna know the truth, it’s one of my favorite books. I don’t read a lot of books.
I’ve drafted a million of these about nonfiction but I’ve kind of disavowed all my patriarchs or w/e except there is still Lisa Fine. I should have read Venturi ten years ago.
these brats are supposed to be like moderate to high achievers at a wealthy school in a college town and they’re reading to kill a mockingbird in…….eleventh grade? can somebody help me out with this

Anonymous said: HELLO RGR IF LUCAS IS INTERNET DAD U ARE MOM so i just watched a gross episode of the X files and need some kind of media related to cool people telling gaslighters to fuck off???????????????? do you have that. if so that would be great??? u r great!!!
hmmm I feel like I’m not totally sure that any of my recommendations would actually be helpful to you because (as I was just telling em earlier) I’m kind of into…watching/reading things that make me feel worse/wallow in it, that sometimes then have relief at the end? (the hunger games, flowers in the attic, most of star trek ds9) but I’m gonna post this while I think on it because many readers will have suggestions
