Об этой аудиокниге

“Wickedly funny and heartstoppingly vulnerable…every page twinkles with brilliance.” —Refinery29

Perfect for fans of Samantha Irby and Trick Mirror, a hilarious, whip-smart collection of personal essays exploring the intersection of queerness, pop culture, the internet, and identity, introducing one of the most undeniably original new voices today.

Jill Gutowitz’s life—for better and worse—has always been on a collision course with pop culture. There’s the time the FBI showed up at her door because of something she tweeted about Game of Thrones. The pop songs that have been the soundtrack to the worst moments of her life. And of course, the pivotal day when Orange Is the New Black hit the airwaves and broke down the door to Jill’s own sexuality. In these honest examinations of identity, desire, and self-worth, Jill explores perhaps the most monumental cultural shift of our lifetimes: the mainstreaming of lesbian culture. Dusting off her own personal traumas and artifacts of her not-so-distant youth she examines how pop culture acts as a fun house mirror reflecting and refracting our values—always teaching, distracting, disappointing, and revealing us.

Girls Can Kiss Now is a fresh and intoxicating blend of personal stories, sharp observations, and laugh-out-loud humor. This timely collection of essays helps us make sense of our collective pop-culture past even as it points the way toward a joyous, uproarious, near—and very queer—future.

Примечание редактора

Early aughts nostalgia…

As a journalist, Jill Gutowitz covered entertainment with a witty flair for outlets like The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, and Vulture. In her debut collection of essays, she couples her expert knowledge of pop culture with her own coming-of-age tale, and what results is a laugh-out-loud collection of comedic essays about growing up as a queer person in the early 2000s. From Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson’s relationship to a list entitled “The Ten Most Important Sapphic Paparazzi Photos in Modern History,” this witty and candid book is perfect for anyone in the mood for early aughts nostalgia.

    Funny, hilarious, and raw! I loved this book and found it quite relatable

    This gave me "I would never, but you do you" vibes way too often for it to be enjoyable. I also thought the authors voice was grating at times. I expected a funny (which it was at times, don't get me wrong) tie in to pop culture and how it affected youth and the author's experiences, but what it turned out to be was more of a "see how horny I was back 'before I learned better'," and I didn't like that.

    I was expecting snarky pop culture and was instead captivated by a candid, at times heartbreaking, memoir whose threads were woven throughout with iconic moments in Sapphic* pop culture.

    *or moments that we perceived as Sapphic.
