Hugh Paxton’s Blog feels increasingly further and further away from TheReporterandTheGirl. Our world’s are so very different! Memorial Day? Baking School?
I admire her vigour, her bounce-back, her compassion, all that! And what I do like is her occasional grumpy spate! She’s a very likeable Girl!
But she’s an American Girl, A New York Girl, a Black Girl, a City Girl, and I’m one of those Englishmen who isn’t any of that.
I read TheGirl’s book and still hold firm to my position – it is an excellent book for a receptive audience. It really is, and it is personal and generous. Touching. There’s power in the writing and TheGirl has let us into her diary. A very special privilege.
We Brits don’t really like talking about that sort of stuff.
Publishing anything is extremely hard. Writing a book is hard. Maintaining a blog is hard.
Which is why Hugh Paxton’s Blog feels that this girl’s gold! She doesn’t relent and isn’t a bossy advisory sort.
Even if she is further and further away from my world she comes close from time to time.
