I loved it. It let me experience an incredible time and place that I would otherwise be unable to. It does (oddly enough) remind me of what life was like growing up in the outskirts of tel aviv in the 90's. The store is a great place to be, and I've loved every dish I've had. My favorite - mac n cheese waffle grilled cheese general tso duck sandwich - is sadly gone. Thank you for the wonderful stories.

What did you love best about Arbitrary Stupid Goal?
This is another great book from Tamara Shopsin. Her performance narrating is nuanced, pitch perfect and drives an excellently written story.
That being said, the 'horn' which notes to the listener to reference the attached pdf for images from the book is really annoying and takes away from the audio experience. No one will be listening in front of a computer to reference the images anyway so it seems out of place
The listening experience would have been improved by telling the audience to download the images after reading the book as a post-listening supplemental material.
What did you like best about this story?
Perfect snapshot of a complicated institution in the middle of a complicated neighborhood. Really enjoyed the short tangents that Shopsin would take into history to make a patchwork of history and memoir.
Have you listened to any of Tamara Shopsin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This was my first time listening to her and I thought her performance was excellent!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes-- and it just took two sittings.
Any additional comments?
A great artist that I hope keeps producing great work.
