The Man in the Gray Flannel SkirtO felt out of place wherever he turned Man in the Gray Flannel PDFEPUB or and who in his own words was forever on the verge of “caving in beneath the pressures of modern life” From his fear of competition to his fear of pimples from his fear of sex to his fear of saturated fat the range and depth of Jon Jon’s phobias were seemingly boundless With his two older brothers providing a sterling example he believed Man in the Gray Flannel PDFEPUB or he could never live up to and his stern grandfather the political philosopher Sidney Hook continually calling him to account for his intellectual failure Jon Jon feeling. Let's just cut to the chase shall we I hesitate to bore you with walking you through them This from the penultimate chapter of this bore of a memoir although referring to the potential moral implications of the author's prototypical Freudian interaction with his mommy as a child could serve just as well as a stand alone indictment of this entire account I as reviewer hesitate to bore you with walking through the myriad shortcomings of this tepid tome but bore you I shallDon't get me wrong I love a good dysfunction junction re hash of a broken childhood But the key word there is good This Not so much To whitWhat was so bad about this dude's life anyway Not much that I could find He grew up a privileged white kid in one of the most affluent physically beautiful settings in the US who went on to be educated on his parents' dime I might add in several of the most prestigious Ivy League institutions here So he has body issues; who doesn't And his parents who apparently supported him into his late 20s or early 30s expected he might make use of his multiple degrees If he wanted to piss away his education seems perfectly fine to me it's his life after all But get over it already If you want to be your own person do it on your own shut UP about it already enough of the guilt ridden angsty bullshit I'm trying to say this feeling broken adrift and wanting to write about it is one thing but it ain't worth reading about if you don't make it interestingfunnypoignant or somehow relevant Entertain me fer chrissakes I'd rather read his grandfather Sydney Hook's autobiography than this self indulgent drivel; he came across as much interesting And Mr Goulian if you're planning to continue your literary pursuits might I suggest you invest in a good dictionary cease desist with the inane parentheticals footnotes uit with the over generalizations please for the love of all that is holy stop whining This ARC was provided to me by the publisher via my local Indie bookstore and no money was exchanged

This book was BEYOND terrible Jon Jon Goulian is like a wannabe Augusten Burroughs or David Sedaris only he suffers from serious writer's ADD and a spoiled upbringing I found myself beginning a chapter with a comprehensive anecdote then being thrown down a maze of tangents only to come back to the original thought with nothing to show for it The point of the story is completely lost on me What I learned about his life is that he is a middle aged extremely vain man from a driven and wealthy family He practically threw all his opportunities down the drain yet still got into an amazing college and what does he have to show for it Nothing he hides in Vermont and writes books about his privileged lifeThere are only two reasons why I would recommend this book1 If you would like read a book to compare your own writing endeavors a great self esteem booster2 If you are in the mood to be completely agitated

Read & download É The Man in the Gray Flannel Skirt ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB æ ❮Download❯ ✤ The Man in the Gray Flannel Skirt ➻ Author Jon-Jon Goulian – The vibrant funny and heartwarming story of an outcast who becomes an odd man inPressed against the wall wracked with despair and dizzy with insecurity instinctively resorted for reasons that became clear to him only many years later to a most ingenious scheme for keeping conventional expectations at bay women’s clothing Ingenious perhaps but woefully ineffective as Jon Jon discovers again and again that behind his skirt leggings halter top and high heels he’s still as wildly neurotic and as wracked with anxiety as he’s always beenIn this hilarious and heartfelt memoir Jon Jon Goulian’s witty and exuberant voice shines through as he comes to terms with what it means to truly be yoursel. Great book What a down to earth guy he is; so even because of his raging insecuritieshe's beyond grounded he's downright catatonic There is very little that is unusual about Jon Jon apart from his name and how he chooses to dress himself Life has been a struggle a competition between what is expected of him and what he is capable ofthe sad part is that he often takes himself out of the fight for fear of failure fear of not living up or for the sake of fear itself He's a germaphobe of the highest order and I can almost feel the bland food to which he grew accustomed His relationship with his family is endearing and I appreciate that he wasn't a malcontent for the sake of being one He just spent a lot of his time being misunderstood I think Great book
