Life Is Short and This Book Is Long: Two Thoroughly Modern Women Continue to Discuss 'David Copperfield' 19
I still have 200 pages to go and I can barely remember what it's like to truly love a book. I am so behind and the book is starting to feel endless. Every night I tell myself, "Okay, go to bed early. Read for an hour or more." Then I get in bed, read two pages, and fall asleep at 9 pm or whatever it is.
Rarely do I read a book that leads me to Charles Dickens, especially considering I tend to read either autobiographical fiction or semi-experimental nonfiction written by women. So who is gonna fave my David Copperfield tweets, I guess is my point?!
Yanagihara's novel has fueled conversations across four social networks, five countries, and countless years of friendship. That’s more than enough to count as my book of the year.
