Riese’s Team Pick: ‘Baby-Sitters Club’ by Bret Easton Ellis

A writer with a style I know & love + a series that defined my adolescence = WIN. Bret Easton Ellis Does the Babysitters Club: “Kristy and Mary-Anne had been talking for about 10 minutes before I stopped totally zoning out, just trying to mellow really on the B-side of this new Beach Boy album. There is nothing more depressing than coming home after last bell at StoneyBrook High, trying to get my room in order for the Baby-Sitters’ Club meeting, and then realizing that you really don’t even give a shit anymore.”
