Too Much Information

I was tempted to title this: Some Books Deserve to Be Burnt.

Per the allusion in the revised title, a large part of the book (So Sad Today) would have been best left unwritten (second best, left unread).

Melissa Broder, superstar spewer in Twitter Town, has tweeted her tits and twat and should-be-private parts of sundry-gendered partners into this collection of "personal" essays, which one reviewer terms "raw as an open vein."

Opening one's vein in a hot bath was the favored method for suicide in the days of the Roman Empire, on account of its being painless relative to other options. In that "vein," bleeding out in a tub would entail less torture than would indulgence in the sordid scenarios with which Broder salaciously assails us.

It is a testament to her talent that Broder manages to render her graphic fantasies and fetishes in exquisite detail such that, by contrast, lifelong abstinence is an attractive alternative.

This reader forthwith forswears further indulgence in her swill.

Which is preferable to taking a vow of chastity.
