I Was Told There'd Be Cake Free read Æ 2 From the author of the novel The Clasp hailed by Michael Chabon Heidi Julavits and J Courtney Sullivan Wry hilarious and profoundly genuine this debut collection of literary essays from Sloane Crosley is a celebration of fallibility and haplessness in all their gloryFrom despoiling an exhibit at the Natural History Museum to provoking the ire of her first boss to siccing the cops. First I have to be fair I only read about 34 of this book because it was all I could stand Maybe the last 14 was amazingI found it rambling uninspired boring and not very funny It sounded like the stories you tell your friends your friends think the stories are funny because they know you Maybe they even tell you that you re really funny and you should write all these stories down and publish them because you are so funny and your stories are so uniue But you know better You know that only your friends will think your stories are funny and that they re not really all that different from any other creative type s silly family antics This lady doesn t seem to catch on to that and she s not my friend so I just don t care about what happens in her fairly tepid lifeI don t know her personally She s probably fun to hang out with Or not But the long winded self centered rambling is just too much in this writing She wants the reader to know her but I find there wasn t much to know or care about Stick with Laurie Notaro

Review I Was Told There'd Be Cake

I Was Told There'd Be Cake Free read Æ 2 On her mysterious neighbor Crosley can do no right despite the best of intentions or perhaps because of them Together these essays create a startlingly funny and revealing portrait of a complex and utterly recognizable character who aims for the stars but hits the ceiling and the inimitable city that has helped shape who she is I Was Told There'd Be Cake introduces a strikingly or. Occasionally humorous but the humor of the spoiled of upper middle class woes such as forgetting your keys leaving your wallet behind spending hundreds on a locksmith after locking yourself out of your Manhattan apartment getting lice at summer camp enduring an annoyed boss because you re a kid just out of an expensive college who has no real marketable skillsCredit where credit s due Sloane Crosley is a decent writer and a decent humorist She can turn a good phrase now and then enough to garner spot laughs through out The problem is a lack of material worth writing about A whole chapter on the old computer game The Oregon Trail seems excessive This book feels like the author is just too young lacks the meaningful life experiences needed to flesh out a book and is stretching the hell out of what little has happened to her Perhaps the book s title is the author s way of saying she s aware of this book s let them eat cake laissez faire attitude And to be fair and honest I did get some laughs out of Crosley s essays I m sure there is an audience for them I m clearly not it
