I love Frank Portman's first book, "King Dork." Whereas "KD" is Portrait of the Rock Star as a Young Man, "Andromeda Klein" is Portrait of the Librarian as a Young Woman. I was looking forward to Portman riffing on pop culture and novels, however, Andromeda is obsessed with the occult. The magic stuff is interesting, but not as immediately relatable or funny as Tom/Chi-mo's musings on "Roesmary's Baby" and Jim Morrison. I liked Portman's portrait of nerdish rocker/hipsters. Portman's word play is in full force. I was also happy that Sam Hellerman makes a cameo.
