Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

"Aye, there's the Rub."

I'm not a fan of the site, but the Gawker book club is a snarky delight. Their dissection of James Lipton's autobiography,"Inside Inside," is worth checking out. So do.

"Inside Inside" has eighteen chapters plus an "Afterword....and Foreword." Remember, it's written in concentric circles! Each chapter has an epigraph and each chapter we're amazed at the pomposity of Lipton's choice—that is, save a stretch where he just quotes Sharon Stone, Russell Crowe and other practitioners of the craft of acting.
