Ah, those must-read, must-do, must-see lists. I too often feel liberated when I find I don’t like something.
I sometimes tell people they must read this or that book. Mostly because I feel lonely for being the only one I know who’s read it. Made me ecstatic a few years ago when my now wife read I Served The King of England and liked it as much as I do.
I’ve always been disappointed trying to talk about theater since no one I know has read Outrageous Fortune.
