Manuscript Monday: Friends, Lovers, and The Big Terrible Thing

On this weeks Manuscript Monday Kim recommends Friends, Lovers, and The Big Terrible Thing by Matthew Perry.

This book is interesting and a fairly reasonable read, but it makes Matthew Perry look bad surprisingly. Usually, the memoir after someone gets sober is full of insight and personal growth. But the way he speaks about his story makes him/it sound so contrived. It’s difficult to explain. He comes off shallow and inauthentic. I think if he knew how he sounded to others, or more specifically to me, he’d be upset. I’m pretty sure he’s a narcissist. I do not recommend because it’s good, I recommend because I wonder if others feel the same as I do?
