About Katie Willingham

I am a recently graduated English major and poet from Macalester College in Saint Paul, MN. I am an avid reader and have a lot to say about what I read.

    Katie Willingham this is the single best piece of criticism I have ever seen that involved the awkward turtle hang thing. If that sounds facetious or whatever it’s not–you’re really good at this, dude!

  2. I loved your queries regarding the metaphors – and especially the awkwardness that would ensue if we were aware of other’s pain at all times… and what is that – a flying duck means awkward? Ok. I’m a dinosaur.
    The ending of your review is so dense (as in thoughtful and provocative). I’ve watched twice and may go back over it again. There is so much to grasp in your thinking. The poignancy of the long love note in the diary – and privacy considerations.
    Thanks for your thoughts! Can’t wait for next week!
