Summary Too Good to Be True

N forces him to confront his own childhood fraught with mental illness and divorce His father’s disdain for money might have been in line with the ’70s zeitgeist but what does it mean when you’re dumping change into a Coinstar machine trying to scrounge enough to buy your son a meal Charged with rage and despair humor and hope this unforgettable book is about losing one’s way and finding it again and the redemptive power of ar Reading this I was reminded of two letters to Sugar featured in Tiny Beautiful Things the one from the young woman who can t move forward because she thinks her student loan debt defines her and the one from the aspiring writer with the staggering sense of entitlement and the MFA from the prestigious school Cheryl Strayed tells the former to stop sniveling make a budget get a job and to remember how fortunate she is she tells the latter to get over herselfI feel kind of hostile towards this book and Mr Anastas and I don t really want to feel that way or write about that But I am not as generous as Sugar And it s just unseemly this memoir The shockingly narrow minded obsession with his debts and his blindness to his sense of entitlement his less than artful stories about his ex wife The real names of Marina and The Nominee are easy to find with a uick online search as are their responses to this memoir I have a friends who write seriously and want to publish they use all available time to read and write and ALSO hold down 40 hourweek jobs because they have to pay the bills They wouldn t appreciate learning that it is demeaning or embarrassing to be without a book contract or to be penny pinching or to be working class or to take the bus instead of a taxi or to forgo the latt s and the 9100 engagement ring and the bed with a headboard or to live in an affordable city within their means instead of a fashionable Brooklyn neighborhood David Foster Wallace wrote Infinite Jest after a breakup He s presumably no DFW but I wish Anastas had put this material through a crucible and turned it into fiction I read many memoirs but sometimes the combination of self aggrandizing retrospection and bald truth telling is just something I don t need to know about I saw Rachel Cusk s reputedly awful divorce memoir on the shelf at library today and wisely passed it up Experimental Treatise Of Alchemy According To The Linguistic Parameters Of The Current Artificial Intelligence to confront his own childhood fraught with mental illness and divorce His father’s disdain for money might have been in line with El Misterio Del Espritu Del Ro the
