Yes, yes, yes. Two weeks before this election. We need a dose of ‘something else,’ even for just an hour or so. Here, virtually, to oblige, is the inimitable Lindy West, with her newest, Shit, Actually: The Definitive 100% Objective Guide to Modern Cinema (Hachette). That title and it is not about the election, it really is about movies. The author of Shrill and The Witches Are Coming here returns to her journalistic roots, where she reviewed films for The Stranger. This is a re-viewing of many iconic and many less-so films of the past forty years.
"It's annoying how many good, funny, and laser-precise books Lindy has written. Here's another damn great book! It's the opposite of shit, actually."— Aidy Bryant.
“Two thumbs up.” - Samantha Irby.
