What’s it about?
Parker Posey is an actress who is known for her work in independent films. In this memoir Parker Posey creates a scene where she is on an airplane and talking with us- the reader. She relates some stories about her childhood, some about her work, and some- I am just not sure what they were about.
What did it make me think about?
All I could think of is those little silver balls in a pinball machine. How they go bouncing around like crazy with no clear direction. That's what I felt like while reading this book...
Should I read it?
I kept thinking that this book was Parker Posey's version of performance art. My favorite part of the book was the photo of her as a small baby with false eyelashes on. She is an original...
"The first photograph I have of myself is of the moment I was brought home from the hospital. I'm in my mother's false eyelashes. When I asked my mom why she put fake eyelashes on me, she said 'you were so small, I didn't know what to do with you'."
