Book Review - Small Things Considered: Moments from Manliness to Manilow
About the Book
The second collection of personal essays from award-winning and nationally-published author and essayist Joel Schwartzberg examines a variety of tiny obsessions and observations about modern life through the comic perspective of a remarried dad and pop culture junkie.Thirty-six hysterical, heroic, and haunting short pieces sum up a half-lifetime's worth of experiences that range from relatable and reassuring to funny and fervent, and one extolling a certain 70's pop icon that really depends on how you feel about the guy.
My Take on the Book
This was a book that was filled with great essays that were so much fun to read. Many of the essays were a bit self-debasing, but that was some of the fun within the book itself. Even though the essays were funny, they all still shared some very heartfelt moments as well as putting into words many of the thoughts and experiences that I have had myself. The book was a quick read that will keep you smiling throughout!
