Carolyn See’s Los Angeles:
Forgive me, Facebook! I do not always want to tell people what I like. This flaw in my character puts me at odds with much of modern life, which is, of course, organized around a relentless cycle of recommendation.
I’ve always been this way. When I love a new band, I selfishly dread the moment they’ll hit Saturday Night Live. When I love a book, particularly a quirky one, I have been known to avoid reviews and especially the comments beneath reviews. Sometimes, I just don’t want to know when people dislike what I adore. But make no mistake: I do adore Carolyn See’s Golden Days, a slim, messy, sexy, funny, ridiculously ambitious, probably easy-to-tear-apart novel about the end (or the beginning?) of the world.
