Slam dunked into a bar by a daddy-less kid in search of a role model. This book was raw, witty and sad. The kind of catnip covered narrator that stumbles over his own broken heart and one cannot help but follow along. A great read.

What Roxane Gay said. I lived in India and was swarmed by lepers while my host father worked at a skin clinic and treated them for free on Monday nights and this book brought me back there with grace and dignity and despair.

“Hating L.A. was in my Northern California DNA. We even had a burl plaque that hung on our living room wall that read, “We Don’t Give a Damn How it’s Done in L.A.”
Antonia Crane, Spent: A Memoir

“New Orleans showed me how to do death. During Mardi Gras, locals dressed their dead up like a parade and marched through the streets, clapped hands, and danced wildly, covered in feathers and beads. I needed to jump into the arms of Death and celebrate the cycle of life. I walked graveyards and offered glitter nail polish to Marie Laveau.”
Antonia Crane, Spent: A Memoir

“I needed a miracle to sew me up so I walked among the dead—the washed up hillbilly bones in graveyards of the poor. In New Orleans, death was an elaborate pageant that caused people to hop up and blow horns. Marching bands and Mardi Gras Indians came out into the streets, and I lunged into the middle of it.”
Antonia Crane, Spent: A Memoir
