Read a pretty glowing review of this book in The L Magazine and two days later found it on the $1 rack at Book Thug Nation. Also it turns out that Chloe and I have a bunch of friends (not to mention a former employer) in common, so when I get around to reviewing this I will be on my best behavior.

***

I don't know, I feel weird reviewing this since I know the author will probably read it (hi, Chloe). The fairest thing I can say is that it felt very young to me, which it is. There's something to be said, of course, for being enamored with oneself—that is clearly a prerequisite for being a memoirist. But IMO it will take a bit more living and perspective-gaining for Chloe's writing style and sense of what's important to mature. Also I think the book (and probably this press altogether) could have used a firmer editor.
