Anthropology of an American Girl by Hilary Thayer Hamann
Scenesters, apparently the phrases "Bloated. Self-indulgent. Cliched." and "equal parts pretentious and poetic, bratty and poignant" really spoke to you. Or maybe it was the Twilight reference. Whatever the case, Anthropology of an American Girl is October's clear winner. I'm trying not to secretly resent you all for picking the 597 page book.
Actually, I'm pretty stoked that there was a lot of buzz about this book in the comments, and am excited to see some new scenesters prowling around Mass. with the (597 p.) PBR Book Club book shoved awkwardly into your back pockets. This one was a big seller last fall, so go snap up your copies at Raven and The Dusty Bookshelf ASAP. Lawrence Public Library still has one copy on the shelf, too, if you, unlike Courtneybelle, aren't compelled to collect books you've read like trophies for a serial killer.
We'll announce time and date for October's meet-up, well, later; in the meantime, come on down to the Replay at 8:30-ish this Thursday to drink beers and pretend you read Cloud Atlas.
