    This is the sort of book you stay up too late reading.I usually stick to fiction, because a character s life as invented by the author has to beinteresting than the real lives of people around us But Jessica s account of working for The Composer is weirder than fiction Sure, it s a story about being a violinist in fake concerts, but also manages to be a study on the nature of memoir, reality, growing up female in the nineties, undergraduate class conflict, a tour of America at war, and t This is the sort of book you stay up too late reading.I usually stick to fiction, because a character s life as invented by the author has to beinteresting than the real lives of people around us But Jessica s account of working for The Composer is weirder than fiction Sure, it s a story about being a violinist in fake concerts, but also manages to be a study on the nature of memoir, reality, growing up female in the nineties, undergraduate class conflict, a tour of America at war, and the unreliable narrator in our own heads I really appreciated the vulnerability she put into this book It allows even a reader with the most boring life to relate to the sometimes crazy experiences the author had While Jessica is critiquing her young self for her inability to make a...

    This is an amazing story I found myself shocked by many of the twists and turns in the author s life, the bizarre situations she found herself in, the ways she found to get by through all of it But what really makes the book great is the author s style direct, curious, unflinching, playful Nearly every page has something that makes me think about some unobserved detail in life what we mean by make a living , how it s often the most inauthentic things that authentically touch people s liv This is an amazing story I found myself shocked by man...
