Drinking Coffee Elsewhere - ZZ Packer


From Drinking Coffee Elsewhere: "Orientation games began the day I arrived at Yale from Baltimore. In my group we played heady, frustrating games for smart people. One game appeared to be charades reinterpreted by existentialists; another involved listening to rocks." I loved Packer's writing from the get go, my first encounter being in 2000 when she was the rage, as she should be. Her writing is just so dang smart, adn probably Top 10 best titles of all time.
