I have my comfort […]

I try to find at least one positive thing to say when writing a negative review, but with Play it as it Lays by Joan Didion I am coming up blank.  The characters were all so unlikable and shallow with images of the Kardashians coming to mind.  Due to the lack of caring for anyone in […]
