Books Info:

Was She Pretty? free pdf A dreamy exploration of relationships and jealousy . . . pithy and deadpan . . . It's no self-help book." --"Salon"""What's left when a relationship ends? Where does jealousy come from? Delicately and sensitively, Leanne Shapton ("Swimming Studies") ruminates on ex-lovers, and our lovers' ex-lovers. A few expressive pencil lines outline a long-abandoned winter coat here, an ineffably alluring Mona Lisa smile there. Each double page describes the way all exes are captured: as impossible to live up to as a Polaroid taken at a flattering angle. This new paperback edition of "Was She Pretty? "brings the reader deep into a circle of phantoms: its intimate liaisons, embarrassing secrets, and sardonic anecdotes. Shapton introduces the obsessives and the dilettantes, the poets and the actresses, the people with great hair and the people with idiosyncratic clothes. As funny as it is insightful, "Was She Pretty? "speaks to a central human concern: How do we compare? Elegantly drawn and perfectly narrated, the pages of "Was She Pretty? "are a testimonial to the power of observation and misapprehension.
