So, I am doing "Summer Reads" this hot summer of 2017 and I needed a memoir, so I searched the data base for memoirs. I was intrigued by the title and description, so I chose this book.

My word. I loved loved LOVED this book! Ms Orlean followed people around, famous and not famous, and recounted their stories with honesty, warmth and insight. She is an absolutely wonderful writer, and I was drawn into her stories with an intensity that I was surprised to experience. She was never negative, although some of the situations were not so positive (in my humble opinion..........."see Tiffany, the young singer") but she never said a negative thing. She just recounted the story as she saw it, without judgment.

I loved this book so much that I read it again. Twice.

I recommend it HIGHLEY.
