But as Dating Tips for the Unemployed went on (and on, and on, and on), I found Smyles writing style and her story tiresome.Dating Tips for the most part reads more like a memoir than a novel.
In fact, this book makes unemployment sound like a grand adventure of dating a lot of guys, travels to Greece, and fun nights on the town and goofy tales of family antics.And speaking of retro, throughout the book featured old school ads found in the back of magazines ages ago.Smyles can be an entertaining writer, at times filled with wit and whimsy, and at other times, moribund and melancholic.Bad Feminist blew me away so when I found her latest release, a collection of short stories called Difficult Women, I just knew I had to read it.I hoped Gay’s singular voice in writing non-fiction would translate into writing fiction. Gay is a writer who fully recognizes the complex lives of women’s truth, from the most of grand experiences to the tiny minutiae that make of their daily lives (and ours).And when it comes to a woman and her collection of paramours, you can’t go wrong with Pamela Des Barres’ I’m With the Band.

This book is slim, but is big on projects, ideas, and practical advice. Crafting With Feminism is a welcome addition to feminist-minded crafters and feminists alike.

First off, the main character is named Iris Smyles.
Gee, I guess coming up with a different name was too difficult for Smyles. There are no stories of trying to get unemployment, updating one’s resume, navigating the on-line obstacle courses of job searches, bad interviews, rejection letters…or worse, no feedback at all.
To this list I’d like to add Backlash by Susan Faludi, Bust DIY Guide to Life: Making Your Way Through Every Day, Jessica Valenti’s Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman’s Guide to Why Feminism Matters and Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People by Amy Sedaris.
