I Love Dick (Semiotext(e) / Native Agents) by Chris Kraus
Category: Self-Help & Psychology
This book was published 15 years ago by Semiotext(e) and takes approximately 9.3 hours to read.
In "I Love Dick", published in 1997, Chris Kraus, author of Aliens & Anorexia, Torpor, and Video Green, boldly tore away the veil that separates fiction from reality and privacy from self-expression. It's no wonder that I Love Dick instantly elicited violent controversies and attracted a host of passionate admirers. I Love Dick is a manifesto for a new kind of feminist who isn't afraid to burn through her own narcissism in order to assume responsibility for herself and for all the injustice in world - and it's a book you won't put down until the author's final, heroic acts of self-revelation and transformation.
Fluffy by Julia Kent
This book was published 2 years ago by Prosaic Publishing and takes approximately 9.4 hours to read.
An all-new STANDALONE from New York Times bestselling author Julia KentIt all started with the wrong Help Wanted ad. Of course it did.I'm a professional fluffer. It's NOT what you think. I stage homes for a living. Real estate agents love me, and my work stands on its own merits.Sigh. Get your mind out of the gutter. Go ahead. Laugh. I'll wait.See? That's the problem. My career has used the term "fluffer" for decades. I didn't even know there was a more... lascivious definition of the term.Until it was too late.The ad for a "professional fluffer" on Craigslist seemed like divine intervention. My last unemployment check was in the bank. I was desperate. Rent was due. The ad said cash paid at the end of the day. The perfect job!Staging homes means showing your best angle. The same principle applies in making a certain kind of movie. Turns out a "fluffer" doesn't arrange decorative pillows on a couch.They arrange other soft, round-ish objects.The job isn't hard. Er, I mean, it is -- it's about being hard. Or, well... helping other people to be hard.Oh, man...And that's the other problem. A man. No, not one of the stars on the movie set. Will Lotham - my high school crush. The owner of the house where we're filming. Illegally. In a vacation rental.By the time the cops show up, what I thought was just a great house staging gig turned into a nightmare involving pictures of me with an undressed star, Will rescuing me from an arrest, and a humiliating lesson in my own naivete.My job turned out to be so much harder than I expected. But you know what's easier than I ever imagined?Having all my dreams come true.
