Little Boxes by Caroline Casey

Into the Wild

Read Little Boxes Online Free - What happens when television is part of your cultural DNA? Twelve writers talk about their influences, and they're more Magnum PI that Marcel Proust. This is cultural criticism from an enthusiast's point of view—taking sitcoms and dramedies and very special episodes seriously, not because they're art, but because they matter to us. Little Boxes is TV writing not as “Why I Loved Parker Lewis Can't Lose” but “What Is Up with Everyone in the 80s Having a Domestic: The Different Strokes/Gimme a Break/Mr. Belvedere/Charles in Charge Story.”

From Edan Lepucki’s “My Monster”:

What I remember: a dead girl wrapped in plastic, and another one half-alive and stumbling along train tracks, her body covered in cuts and bruises, her clothes torn. Letters tweezed from beneath fingernails. The dead girl blue-white like a vein. Her name is Laura Palmer. There’s also a lady cradling a log, and a beautiful woman who knots cherry stems with her tongue. Handsome Agent Cooper with his hair slicked back. The name Peggy Lipton lingering across the screen as the eerie theme song sluices through my veins.

This book builds, despite its brevity. I'm a little emotionally spent by the last three essays. This is of the moment modern and yet deeply nostalgic.

Little Boxes is a short read (the full book is about 120 pages, with each essay averaging around 10 pages) that feels much bigger, more expansive, because how expertly it contains the worlds it seeks to explore. If, like me, you haven’t revisited Twin Peaks or Lawndale in a few years, Little Boxe...
