Poet Baffles Twitter With Her Unpopular Opinions About Books

Poet and essayist Patricia Lockwood, author of the memoir Priestdaddy, took over The Strand Book Store’s Twitter account for an hour on Tuesday and shared her opinions on some famous works of literature.

The result? A frenzy of laugh-out-loud tweets about her “unpopular book opinions.” 

Some people found the account takeover somewhat unhinged and wanted to check in with the bookstore to make sure everything was A-OK.

Others were into it, agreeing with Lockwood’s “unpopular opinions,” and applauding the weirdness.

After an hour of Twitter mayhem, Lockwood ended her flurry with what she called “the best book tweet of all time.”

Twitter is such a special place, isn’t it?
