Quotable: "my job is to make people uncomfortable"

Heather J. Kirk is currently listening to A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan

I'd say this book is one of those "alternative styles" and jumps from person to person, year to year. It's hard to follow sometimes, but trust that eventually the charaters show up again and it all ties together. As with all experimental work - some is a bit strange. But there are several chapters that are uproariously funny! And it is dark humor, my favorite kind.

Here's a quote I chose (sounds a bit like me...):

12-year-old Alison: “‘I want to know every bad thing you’ve done,’ I say, ‘including dangerous and embarrassing.’ ‘You can’t,’ Mom says. I stare at her until she looks away. What I suddenly understand: My job is to make people uncomfortable. I will do it all my life. My mother, Sasha Blake, is my first victim.
