I read compulsively, eclectically and fannishly.

Currently reading

Quand un roi perd la France (Les rois maudits, #7)
Maurice Druon
George Steiner
The Captive & The Fugitive
Marcel Proust, C.K. Scott Moncrieff, Terence Kilmartin, D.J. Enright
Food, Girls, and Other Things I Can't Have - Allen Zadoff Promising if uneven debut.

I'm not in love with the title and its syntactical transformation of women into objects, although the structure, similar to popular YA titles aimed primarily at girls, does a decent job at signaling the tone, which is scathingly introspective, insecure, and very funny, all things I assocate with, and don't think should be limited to, really good chicklit.

To be fair, although Andrew does fall prey to the temptation to objectify the female objects of his desires, there are other characters willing to (figuratively) kick his ass about it.
