Here are a few things from around the web that may interest you:

“All Johnson’s stories resist the neat closure of the happily ever after. […] The college girl grows up, gets married, gets divorced, gets married again. She makes the wrong choices and then gets to make new ones. “This, then, is what the result is for a girl who has been brought up in a world where the only real value is self-betterment,” Johnson concluded in 1959. “She has had to create her own right and wrong, by trial and error and endless discussion.”

This is the story that Johnson wrote again and again, for several decades, until she died in 2017: There’s no happily ever after, or any ever after at all, but there’s happiness. Heartbreak. Regret. Magic. Surprise. Her extraordinary work was also a life lived, and recorded in pieces, over decades of love stories.”

    I’m excited to watch Shrill! I also started Queer Eye season 3 and it’s so cute. The first episode is a straight woman who’s a guard in a men’s prison.

      I’m going to subscribe to Hulu just to watch Shrill. Looks so good!

      I love me some QE.

        I binged it over the weekend! (Which I never do, but it was only 6 episodes so it wasn’t too hard.) Would love to discuss!

      I watched the first episode and liked it! It was a little “millennial” for me I guess but I loved Aidy and her roommate and the writing. I will definitely watch all 6, but I binged on Queer Eye first.

    I watched the first three episodes of QE. LOVED the first. It looks like they decided not to use the one from my hometown. Sad!
