What Francesca is … | Manolo for the Big Girl

What Francesca is …


Land’s End: a walk in Provincetown by Michael Cunningham. Evocative, lyrical little book about the town that, during the summer, is family tourist attraction by day and happening gay scene by night.

The Street Lawyer by John Grisham. The lawyer-cum-fugitive plot is standard Grisham fare (only flimsier), but the book offers a deep and thought-provoking look inside the world of Washington D.C.’s homeless population. In other words, the book is  cotton-candy-coated way to digest some bitter pills.


House, MD, season 5. It took Francesca months to find a way to download this show legally in the country in which she resides. Francesca respects copyrights! But now she finally has access to the fifth season.

Listening to

Electric Light Orchestra’s Time. The song “Ticket to the Moon” breaks Francesca’s heart every time (because she thinks it is a metaphor for death). And yet “Your’s Truly, 2095” makes Francesca smile with its fun premise and innuendos.

Happy weekend! xoxo

    If Francesca likes bitter pills in candy coatings, may I suggest “A most Wanted Man” by John Le Carre. The characters weren’t great, but the plot was engaging. A thoughful review of American foreign policy towards Islam disguised as a suspense novel.
