> LE MANUEL DU PARFAIT PETIT MASOCHISTE. Dan Greenburg (Point/Virgule, n° 34, 1985). — Des livres de conseils pratiques de style « Comment se faire des amis », « Comment se trouver un emploi », il s’en publie une multitude. Faites vous-même votre malheur de Paul Watzlawick se voulait une parodie de ce type d’ouvrages. Le manuel du parfait petit masochiste (dont la version anglaise date de 1966) s’inscrit dans la même lignée : on y apprend l'art de se torturer soi-même.
Empoisonner son existence, et l’empoisonner de façon durable, suppose la maîtrise de deux concepts fondamentaux : refuser d’accepter ce qu’on ne peut changer et se fixer des objectifs parfaitement irréalistes. Ce guide renferme donc des exercices de pensée négative, des craintes minimales pour les voyages en avion, les conditions optimales pour broyer du noir, bref toutes les techniques de base pour se créer une vie vraiment pénible, misérable et dépourvue de sens, sans oublier les stratégies pour perdre son emploi, son (sa) chum et ses amis. Et j’en passe…
Après lecture de ce manuel, vous saurez transformer les petites peurs et inquiétudes de la vie quotidienne en véritables angoisses. Et dorénavant, vos leitmotive seront: « Dans la vie faut s'en faire », « À chaque jour ne suffit pas sa peine » ou pourquoi pas « Tant qu'il y a de la vie, il y a du désespoir »! (Susy TURCOTTE)
Nuit blanche, No. 19, juin–juillet–août 1985, p. 56

Oh what fun this was! I love cats. I love women doing incredible things. A cat telling me about her Mommy doing incredible things? Yes! Please do! Especially when you do it this well.

What a disappointment! Turns out I am unable to read this on my Kindle Paperwhite because the font is too small and there is no way to enlarge it. I've never run into an issue like this and don't know if there are any workarounds. So, until I figure out how to get it to open on my tablet or laptop, I can't read it. It looks so good, too. I may just have to buy a copy.

I received a copy of The Only True Biography of Mae Jemison by Sneeze, Her Cat by Dan Greenburg from LibraryThing Early Reviewers. I am on my public library board and we are focusing on EDI this year. I requested this book with an eye to recommending it for inclusion in our library. I’m happy to say I will definitely be making this recommendation. This is a charming story that makes an extraordinary woman seem very human through the eyes of her cat. It also should improve people’s opinion of cats, as Sneeze is both wise and funny. It was a nice relief from the pandemic to read this enchanting tale.… (mere)
