Why does Facebook hate books? June 11, 2014

Facebook advertising (without which a post on a page with almost 700 likes reaches < 10 of its fans, found thismpost offensive.

Thursday at 6 pm Octavia Books features Andre Dubus III’s DIRTY LOVE. In this heartbreakingly beautiful book of disillusioned intimacy and persistent yearning, beloved and celebrated author Andre Dubus III explores the bottomless needs and stubborn weaknesses of people seeking gratification in food and sex, work and love. In these linked novellas in which characters walk out the back door of one story and into the next, love is “dirty”-tangled up with need, power, boredom, ego, fear, and fantasy. Slivered by happiness and discontent, aging and death, but also persistent hope and forgiveness, these beautifully wrought narratives express extraordinary tenderness toward human beings, our vulnerable hearts and bodies, our fulfilling and unfulfilling lives alone and with others.

If you think this is silly drop a line to info@facebook.com and tell them to stop disapproving posts for silly reasons.

Or — like me, have nothing whatsoever to do with fb, despite it’s constant spamming of one of my e-mail accounts demanding I join fb, and that indeed, it has decided to create an account in my name, harvested from some mutual friends’ e-contacts somehow.

We hate them as much as we hate amazon. They are EviLe Monopolies, harvesting our intellects and souls like predatory demons for their dark lords.
