On "A Lady Who Followed Ever Her Natural Bents": Happy Birthday, Dorothy Parker

@worldofsass, I took "they" to mean men, and the poem to be in part about her thirtysomething realization that she'd been choosing the wrong men, or loving the ones who wouldn't love her back, until they did. But I don't actually know if that's true!

On Kate Christensen's Blue Plate Special; Or, "Another Fucking Food Book"

@lookuplookup I would say this one does, especially when Kate is young and then new to New York, but really it's woven throughout. I need to read Blood, Bones & Butter, which I've heard is great.
