“No, seriously, Ernie, what’s the book really about?”

Okay, this is pretty freaking funny. Helena Fitzgerald (love her self-description: “non-fiction, fiction, public crying. blah blah internet. taller in person“) has her finger on the pulse of literature. She’s also penned a fantastic piece in @ElectricLit titled “20 Authors I Don’t Have to Read Because I’ve Dated Men for 16 Years: If you’ve spent enough time around dudes, you’ve BASICALLY read these.

My only critique would be that the list is missing F. Scott Fitzgerald and that I’d put Jonathan Safran Foer on the opposite list: “20 Authors I Don’t Have to Read Because I’ve Dated Women for 16 Years.”

Aside from that one tiny blemish, the above piece is literary/dating gold.
