The Second Annual Janet Potter Awards for Literary Achievement...including "Cutest Couple," "Best Temper Tantrum," and "Biggest Failure."
When I wasn't reading a bunch of depressing shit, I read some strange and wonderful things.
These are books that -- like Girls -- explore what it is like to be young and hungry -- hungry for love and hungry for sex, but most of all, hungry for recognition and hungry for adulthood. Ultimately, the girls in these books, like the girls of Girls, are hungry to become the women they will one day be.
I don’t think I’ve ever read books so utterly lacking in sentiment, and yet so completely heartbreaking.
