E-mail deze pagina. Auteur: Barry Yourgrau. Samenvatting Millions of Americans struggle with severe clutter and hoarding. New York writer and bohemian Barry Yourgrau is one of them. Behind the door of his Queens apartment, Yourgrau's life is, quite literally, chaos.
Confronted by his exasperated girlfriend, a globe-trotting food critic, he embarks on a heartfelt, wide-ranging, and too often uproarious project-part Larry David, part Janet Malcolm-to take control of his crammed, disorderly apartment and life, and to explore the wider world of collecting, clutter, and extreme hoarding. Encounters with a professional declutterer, a Lacanian shrink, and Clutterers Anonymous-not to mention England's most excessive hoarder-as well as explorations of the bewildering universe of new therapies and brain science, help Yourgrau navigate uncharted territory: clearing shelves, boxes, and bags; throwing out a nostalgic cracked pasta bowl; and sorting through a lifetime of messy relationships.
Mess is the story of one man's efforts to learn to let go, to clean up his space physical and emotional , and to save his relationship. Toon meer Toon minder. Recensie s If Richard Pryor and Lydia Davis shared a hoarder's body, this is the memoir of that wild gorgeous being.
Mess: One Man's Struggle to Clean Up His House and His Act by Barry Yourgragu
A great literary mind gathers the whole world into his apartment and then, like a Grimm's witch, tries to make it disappear. Barry Yourgrau is America's Kafka, if Kafka were hysterically funny, weirdly relatable, and had just a little bit of a hoarding problem. Mess is a total Yourgrau feast-I wept with laughter but then why couldn't I throw away my Kleenex?
What can we say: Hoarders seem to be hot.
I will never look at clutter the same way again. I love this book! Reviews Schrijf een review.
