When you go to the grocery store, do you walk up and down every aisle, looking for things you might not even realize you need until you see them? Or do you go right to what's needed, throw it in the cart, and get out of there? What does this say about you? What does it say about your mother and father, who taught you one way or the other? Speaking of which, did you ever really know your mother? Are you sure your father's who he says he is? Oh, and what if, as you were figuring this all out, you found yourself living some sort of dream version of your life -- one in which the most glamorous and intriguing figures of the twentieth century chose you and pushed you to be a better version of yourself, to make peace with your family, to become a better artist? These are just a few of the situations -- some quirky, some heart-wrenching, some inspiring, many funny and witty -- in Steven Rowley's delightful and continually engaging second novel. I was lucky enough to meet this author and hear him speak about the book at a literary event, and I'm thrilled to have received an early copy, which makes the most excellent company.
