A good book and a MEME


I just finished this book last night and it was fantastic!! It was totally hilarious and a blast to read. It is a memoir of a woman who grew up in the 1970's and 80's. She landed a job at Rolling Stone magazine, so interspersed with her stories of growing up the oldest of two sisters she intersperses antecdotes about interviewing famous people. Great summer read! Run, don't walk to get your copy. I was laughing so hard during the first chapter I couldn't believe it.
