So, I actually saw Ruby Sparks last night and am writing about it now. It is good — and it’s in conversation with Girls and Sheila Heti’sHow Should a Person Be? in a way that makes me think there is actually some tide turning around young women wrestling their own stories out of the hands of male writers.
But this marketing idea is either some brilliant stealth appeal to the exact kind of person that needs to see Ruby Sparks most or a colossally stupid inversion of Zoe Kazan’s whole point.
