Emma announced via Instagram Belletrist’s book of the month for July, Sex and Rage by Eve Babitz. Belletrist is having a poetry contest in celebration of the publication of Love Her Wild by Atticus. See details below! She also recently shared meeting her friend’s (Kara Elkin) baby since being born about two weeks ago.
As a young girl growing up in Los Angeles, I spent a lot of time & energy trying to figure out who I was. I think this is true for young women growing up in most places — and it is for this reason that we chose #SexAndRage by the legendary #EveBabitz as our #July @belletrist book pick. Babitz’s heroine, Jacaranda, speaks volumes to the messiness and mistakes that mark adolescence. I can’t wait for you guys to read her story, and to hopefully enjoy the rest of the Eve Babitz collection once you finish this one. Read it on the beach, read it in your house, read it on the subway, read it wherever books are read…which is, of course, everywhere. Head over to @belletrist for more… ?
