My very own kellysue #duckfaceselfie. She looks flawless. I look like a tired hairy half-deflated balloon cosplaying as a human.

We’re so very looking forward to a cool evening next Wednesday with literary BFFs Emma Straub and Edan Lepucki. Straub’s new novel, The Vacationers, is Cristin’s “new favorite book for grownups,” and “the book girls in cute sundresses will be reading on the subway all summer” (true!). Meanwhile, Lepucki’s debut, California, has quite a few fans, too, including Sherman Alexie and Steven Colbert. Frozen piña coladas and post-apocalyptic-strength sunscreen optional.

Being somewhat obsessed with food, I took note of what they ate while reading the book. This is a menu that I put together, inspired by the first 8 chapters of the book. For the most part, Frida and Cal could have cooked this. Between foraging, growing their own garden, and trading with August, they could make a simpler version of this menu.

It’s definitely worth a listen if the above passage was at all interesting to you.
