I was talking to a good friend of mine who had loaned Secrets of Truth & Beauty to her boyfriend. Now a man in his mid-thirties is not exactly what you would call my target audience. But he loved it! He would actually read parts of it aloud to her.
However, he took the dust jacket off when he was riding the NYC subway because he was embarrassed to be seen reading it.
Come on, now!
It’s a beautiful girl and a gorgeous guy. What’s so embarrassing about that?
It’s the pink, isn’t it?
Well, first of all, gentleman, you should be aware that it’s not pink, it’s magenta.
But even if it were pink, so what? Pink is a power color! Don’t fear it — embrace it!
