The Search for America’s Next Great Pussycat Novelist

FBLA loves to flip back and forth between tv shows, especially when the two shows elaborate on the same theme.

The Search for the Next Pussycat Doll on the CW and PBS’s Novel Reflections on the American Dream fit together surprisingly well. Once an English major, always an English major.

Exploring Sister Carrie and The House of Mirth while indulging in the struggles of Chelsea and Anastasia and Asia et al. was a wonderfully symbiotic experience. Lily Bart would have too proud to be a PCB, but not Carrie.

And Erica Jong and Robin Antin appear to have been hit by the same shovel.

Fun Fact: Robin’s brother, Steve, once dated David Geffen.
