Love Vigilante

I suppose most of us are lonely in this world, but you have to fall tremendously in love to find it out. -Orson Welles

The best gift I can give myself is the freedom to feel. Lean in.

If you have not read anything about the Baudelaire orphans, then before you read even one more sentence, you should know this: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are kindhearted and quick-witted, but their lives are filled with bad luck and misery. All of the stories about these three children are unhappy and wretched and will most likely fill you with deep despair. (x)

It is the opinion of your hosts, literatureloveaffair and thebooker that Lemony Snicket’s chronicles of the Baudelaire children’s unhappy adventures is best experienced as a group, hence the birth of this rather unhappy readalong. 
Who? One and all are welcome to join in the readalong, whether this will be your first or millionth time reading the series. 
How?Together we shall be reading one book of Snicket’s tridecalogy a week, posting updates as regularly as we’re able. Post quotes, thoughts, reviews, recommendations, whatever takes your fancy! Just make sure to tag it #asouereadalong so we can all enjoy it together on our various functioning devices. 
During each week there will also be a challenge to complete. The specifics of each challenge shall be posted at the beginning of the week. Challenges will be tagged #asouereadalongchallenge, and we ask you tag your responses this also. 
When? The readalong begins on Sunday the 28th of September, with one book assigned to each week beginning on Sundays and ending on Saturdays.

This was my 2012-2013 project: every time I got a good grade or had done something worth celebrating, I bought one book.

A Towering Figure Enclosed Within a Glass Greenhouse by Susanne Ussing
Susanne Ussing, ‘I Drivhuset’ (‘In the Greenhouse’), 1980. Ussing was a Danish artist and architect, with a special interest ceramics. This mixed-media piece brings together the world of sculpture and architecture by placing the former inside the latter. Classical parallels are easily conjured here. Like a latter-day (and feminine) Zeus at Olympia, this ginormous female figure is too large for the confines of the glasshouse, which looks like it might shatter were she to move too freely; like a Crouching Aphrodite of immodest proportions, she looks vulnerable and coquettish all at once. At the same time, her skin of newspapers and skeleton of metal and wood thoroughly modern - not quite distracting from the gracefulness of her pose, but instead under-girding her with firm foundations.


Susanne Ussing (1940-1998, Danish) - I Drivhuset installed at Ordrupgaardsamlingen (In the Glasshouse), Denmark, 1980. It is composed of granite and porous materials.
