news.avclub.comLucas Hedges faces gay conversion therapy in this dramatic trailer for Boy ErasedLast week, one of our Trailer Happy Hour roundups included a teaser for The Miseducation Of Cameron Post, a ‘90s-set coming-of-age story starring Chloë Grace Moretz as a girl escaping from a gay conversion camp with her friends. As we noted then, it seemed to be more about lame religious people trying to stamp down a young girl’s wild spirit than about harrowing emotional drama, but this trailer for Joel Edgerton’s Boy Erased gives us all of the harrowing emotional drama we’ve been looking for. Edgerton wrote and directed the film, which is based on Garrard Conley’s memoir of the same name, and just in this two-and-a-half-minute video we get star Lucas Hedges realizing he’s gay, telling his parents (Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe) that he’s gay, getting sent away for being gay, and dealing with a therapist (Edgerton) who is trying to convince him that it’s wrong to be gay.

lifehacker.comPretend You're Good at It A while back, I met up with my pal Jenny Lawson, who was in town recording the audiobook version of her memoir, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened.

theparisreview.orgMary Karr, The Art of Memoir No. 1Mary Karr in 2001. For a writer who has shared herself with the public in three memoirs, Mary Karr is an extraordinarily elusive interview subject.

tizzime.comHow To read Without ReadingCrazy huh? How can I read without reading? That's impossible! Whoa! Whoa! hold on a sec. Stop the presses. Anything is possible my friends. In fact, if you look closely at the word, "impossible" with the right state of mind turns into "I'm possible". Get it? Well then, let's keep this glorious state of mind and step into a world where the possibilities for enlightenment are endless. Who has time to read anymore? When I ask that question I'm not talking about your average tweet or Facebook post consisting of 140 characters or a few paragraphs, I'm talking about a 300+ page, fully grown, novel or memoir.
