I have been a fan of Lauren Winner ever since I happened to pick up her first memoir, Girl Meets God, at a bookstore in San Diego over Thanksgiving holiday one year. As Osheta and I came to realize, though, Winner’s Wearing God may be more of a winter than a summer read.
You know, like this:
Her thoughts are thick. And snowy. And full of fine ice crystals that coat January’s berries, among other unnecessary metaphors.
She requires a cup of hot tea more than a Mason jar of iced lemonade, if you catch my drift. And as we found out from most of the Shalom in the City listeners, this wasn’t the best pick for the month of June (a month that screams brainless, novel-filled beach reads for the great majority).
Better yet, head over to iTunes if you haven’t already, and subscribe to the Shalom in the City podcast. Otherwise, if you have further thoughts, join the conversation and leave a comment below.
Also, be sure to grab a copy of The Knockoff, our July book of the month. I’m in the middle of it now, and I’m just warning you: it is so much fun. If you liked The Devil Wears Prada back in the day, and if you find yourself wondering what to do with all the millennials of this world, it’s a must-read.
So, Lauren Winner: are you a fan? If you read Wearing God, what attribute or characteristic she described was your favorite? And would you agree with our “winter” assessment of her writing?
