In case you are one of those people running out to buy a copy of Andrew Morton's new unauthorized (whatever that means) biography of Angelina Jolie and are unsure of the many subtexts that just have to exist in each event of her life because she is famous, Jen Chaney and Liz Kelly of the Washington Post are here to help guide you with meaningful questions to ask at the next Book Club meeting.   Take that, Oprah!

You can probably even relate the events to your own life to make it more interesting.  To wit:

Did you let your 14 year old daughter take over your bedroom and have her boyfriend move in with you?  

Ask "How does the author use irony here to make an important point about gender politics and mother-daughter relationships?"

Did you ever pee in a bottle and give it to your father's girlfriend?  

Ask "Do you agree that the appearance of urine symbolizes the fluidity of the relationship between Jolie and Voight?" 

There's plenty more but I don't want to ruin it for you ... I guess I could link to a copy of the book but not until someone discusses important things, like why her tattoo to Billy Bob Thornton wasn't written in an edgier font, like Garamond or Century Gothic.
