review The Man in the Gray Flannel Skirt

The Man in the Gray Flannel SkirtAs a hyperneurotic kid who felt out of place wherever he turned Man in the Gray Flannel Epuband who in his own words was forever on the verge of “caving in beneath the pressures of modern life” From his fear of competition to his fear of pimples from his fear of sex to his fear of saturated fat the range and depth of Jon Jon’s phobias were seemingly boundless With his two older brothers providing a sterling example he believed he could never live up to and his stern grandfather the political philosopher Sidney Hook continually calling him to account for his intellectual failure Jon Jon feeling pressed. Let's just cut to the chase shall we I hesitate to bore you with walking you through them This from the penultimate chapter of this bore of a memoir although referring to the potential moral implications of the author's prototypical Freudian interaction with his mommy as a child could serve just as well as a stand alone indictment of this entire account I as reviewer hesitate to bore you with walking through the myriad shortcomings of this tepid tome but bore you I shallDon't get me wrong I love a good dysfunction junction re hash of a broken childhood But the key word there is good This Not so much To whitWhat was so bad about this dude's life anyway Not much that I could find He grew up a privileged white kid in one of the most affluent physically beautiful settings in the US who went on to be educated on his parents' dime I might add in several of the most prestigious Ivy League institutions here So he has body issues; who doesn't And his parents who apparently supported him into his late 20s or early 30s expected he might make use of his multiple degrees If he wanted to piss away his education seems perfectly fine to me it's his life after all But get over it already If you want to be your own person do it on your own shut UP about it already enough of the guilt ridden angsty bullshit I'm trying to say this feeling broken adrift and wanting to write about it is one thing but it ain't worth reading about if you don't make it interestingfunnypoignant or somehow relevant Entertain me fer chrissakes I'd rather read his grandfather Sydney Hook's autobiography than this self indulgent drivel; he came across as much interesting And Mr Goulian if you're planning to continue your literary pursuits might I suggest you invest in a good dictionary cease desist with the inane parentheticals footnotes uit with the over generalizations please for the love of all that is holy stop whining This ARC was provided to me by the publisher via my local Indie bookstore and no money was exchanged

I received this as a first reads giveaway as well I must also admit that the title caught me because I have been wanting to read The Man In the Gay Flannel Shirt and thought this one may offer an interesting twist I am sorry but I could not get through it I can see how this might be engaging to someone who really enjoys the tragic memoir style of writing that it offers Just not my cup of tea One can only listen to the whinings of a poor little rich kid for so long
