flanagan free associates and i'm struck dumb
it seems new yorker writer caitlin flanagan has reviewed a book called the rainbow party.
i honestly don't know what to make of flanagan's review, which careens wildly through young adult fiction, teaching girls aggression, her own interpretations of rap lyrics, pornography without definitions, personal gossip and media hysteria. and emdashes, who pointed me towards the review, available on Powell's also seems a little floored. i think emdashes says that the review was originally written for the atlantic monthly.
of course anyone with a critical interest in what i will provisionally agree to call, "the teenage oral-sex craze" can respond, but this issue seems to cover a lot of femme feral's territory.
i would also like to say that femme feral's new blog title banner thing is a visual pleasure in the best sense of the words.
