Book Review: The Infinite Wait and Other Stories by Julia Wertz
I reserved this book from the library as soon as I finished Drinking At The Movies. Upon checking it out, I read it in like 2 seconds. This volume brings us from childhood to the present-ish, and back again. It’s in 3 segments:
1. Industry (crappy and awesome jobs through Wertz’s life. lots of food industry stuff that I could seriously relate to)
2. The Infinite Wait (moving to SF and getting a diagnosis and living and stuff. oh, san francisco. The author and I may have some different opinions about homelessness, but the rest was lovely)
3. A Strange and Curious Place (about the hometown and the hometown library. yay libraries.)
I liked this one just as much as I liked the other one; I pretty much sat down with it and didn’t get back up until I was finished reading it (when I was doing other things I was totally thinking about getting back to it). The illustrations are alluring, the pace is good, the plot is engaging, and I want more.
