Hi! I’m on vacation right now. OK, I’m actually just struggling with luggage and dog kennels and a kid with an ear infection, busted teeth and a swollen mouth. And I get to get on an AIRPLANE with him. I’m so lucky.
Please enjoy this post I wrote a while back. I won’t be around to answer comments or emails, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t LEAVE comments or emails, as I will likely read them while hiding in an airport bathroom, alternately sobbing and wondering who will pee on me on the airplane. (And they say that motherhood is tough. Bah!)
My friend sent me an article on J. Franz (that’s Jonathan Franzen to you, but I think he’d appreciate being called J. Franz more, don’t you?) and his many hates. She knows how I adore his books. In addition to believing the ebook is killing society, he also hates smartphones, facebook, the Internet in general, and cats. Oh, and puppies, rainbows, love, world peace and happiness.
But none of this is surprising. The real question is: what does J. Franz LOVE?
1. Admiring His Art
“Perfect!” he’d exclaim (but only in the privacy (that’s pronounced the British way, “priv-uh-see”) of his own home).
2. Proving His Art Is Better Than Others’
3. Admiring Other Forms of His Art
And I believe that’s the exhaustive list of J. Franz loves. But enough talking about that. Now tell me what YOU love about J. Franz.
