On Ask a Clean Person About Her New Book: A Conversation With Jolie Kerr

Jolie, no joke, my home is so, so different thanks in large to your column. That is not hyperbole. It is way tidier! It is organized! My bathroom always looks nice! My bed is always made! My kitchen looks nice! I still struggle with deep cleaning, but it's easier now, because it isn't like, the boogey monster waiting to attack me, but a task that I am fully capable of doing whenever I have the time. So thank you. I can't wait to buy your book.

On How My Obsession With Furnishing A Future Put Me Nearly $40,000 In Debt

@lovingskyfairy you are being needlessly cruel. but I think you know that.

you should also know that I am friends with S. Elizabeth, and your estimation of her character could not be more untrue. You need to hush your mouth and step away from the internet.

@lovingskyfairy that was a profoundly uncool thing to say. why are you being so mean?

also, creating a throwaway account just to make a nasty comment is a really cowardly thing to do.

@Scar892 I guess I missed the part where 1) you are the authorized representative of the author and 2) somehow had any knowledge of the lived experience of myself or the other dissenting commenter's lives. Because you aren't, and you don't. So hush with your nonsense trolling ways.

Ugh and FURTHERMORE. the romanticization of a rural life, of a woman playing house, complete with oil deliveries, is sickening. Yeah, I lived that life too. Only it was for real, because it was all I could afford, and I worked my ass off to pay for those oil deliveries in my small cabin on the hill over the sea. I wasn't teaching at a university on a fellowship, I was getting up at the crack of dawn every day to work at a diner.

@S. Elizabeth yes, the sheer hollowness of this life makes me angry. Not because I feel sorry for the writer, but because it is a squandering of so much privilege and opportunity, with such drivel as the result.

On When a Man Writes a Woman

@Lily Rowan I love Wally Lamb's writing. The one he wrote a few years ago, The Hour I First Believed, is also really great, although it didn't wreck me in the same way. And apparently he teaches writing to women in prison, which is pretty rad.
