This is a jawn about libraries

monumentoursetlist said: I work at my university's bookstore and every semester one of the professors teaches 'Fight Club' and it's so exciting to see boxes of it come in and rather disappointed to see people return their rented copied or sell them back. Once I returned a copy and the student wrote the synopsis of each chapter under the heading and I freaked out. My manager said it was in otherwise fine condition so we couldn't charge her but what spoilers. How do you feel about your work being taught ?
this makes me hate things
Wait, so Fight Club was genuine? It wasn’t satire of men feeling impotent rage at the prospect of women making gains toward equality?
I’ve legitimately thought it was satire for the last ten years, and now I feel even grosser about my teenage self.
Cool! I get to hate this book even more!
Are you FUCKING KIDDING ME right now, Chuck?almost no books depicting social models for men
That fact that ‘Fight Club’ is being taught seems — to me — to underscore the dearth of novels that explore male issues. The past years have given us so many books, from ‘The Color Purple’ to ‘The Joy Luck Club’ to ‘How to Make an American Quilt,’ which depict women in groups and relationship, but almost no books depicting social models for men. That’s my two cents worth.
