It’s my least favorite one!
It’sThe Giving Tree. Which, interestingly, also appears to by Ryan Gosling’s least favorite children’s book. A while ago he told New York Magazine that:
“That book is so fucked up; that story’s the worst. I mean, at the end the tree is a stump and the old guy just sitting on him; he’s just used him to death, and you’re supposed to want to be the tree? Fuck you. You be the tree. I don’t want to be the tree.”
I hope the tiny script says “you be the tree.”
