I liked it, I did, but I didn't love it. I think there are some great moments where Gould talks about working in publishing, about being new to New York, about being lost and aimless and hoping to be recognized as being special. But a lot of it also felt kind of self-indulgent. And I'm not sure how I haven't thought that about all autobiography/memoir, but I definitely haven't. There were times, I think, where she felt she was being more insightful or wise than I found her to be.

All that said, I read it in a day so I certainly didn't dislike it (maybe three hours all told; it's over 200 pages but only because the font and margins are enormous).
