BOOK DETAILS

Susan Jane gives an overview of the book:

Gilman's stories tell of struggling to get a life and a clue. Whether she's an uncool white kid in a tough Puerto Rican neighborhood twirling around in her tutu, a teenager chasing a rock star, an ambitious cub reporter realizing there's more to the world than her own navel, or a feminist bride having a meltdown at a wedding salon, Gilman's memoire is so engaging, it reads like the very best fiction. At turns heartbreaking, insightful, and screamingly funny, it uniquely chronicles a generation  -- and heralds a talented writer of note. -- from Publisher
