This book is pieced together entirely from past interviews and distant secondary sources, making most of it rooted in conjecture and heresay. Although a bit dry at points, I found the book enthralling at points and worth reading. However, this is due to the fact that I have a personal interest in Chan Marshall, and wonder who the beautiful woman behind my favorite albums is. Those who don't like her music/persona will most likely not like this book.

amie I've been dying to read this! Wasn't that great?

Adrienne Urbanski Was the book great? It was good, not great, Goodman didn't really offer up anything conclusive in her discussion of Chan. Though I did like hearing all about Chan's life in full summation and detail.

Cherdan Helena Agreed. I personally loved it, but I'm a rather big fan who has all her records, except for the 2 covers ones, ironically..
