But Enough About Me: A Jersey Girl’s Unlikely Adventures Among the Absurdly Famous by Jancee Dunn.

(It took me so long to write about The Emperor’s Children that I am a little behind on writing about some of my other books as well. Don’t ask me why I have to write about them in order. I just do.)

This was an enjoyable read. Jancee Dunn is a contributing editor at Rolling Stone, and this is the story of how she got that job, what it was like to live the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle, and some of her more memorable interviews. It wasn’t a life-changing book, but I liked her stories of interviewing Madonna and Dolly Parton and Ben Affleck and Barry White and Loretta Lynn and Brad Pitt (I couldn’t choose a favorite, so I just listed all the ones I remember off the top of my head). She was funny and self-deprecating, and the book kind of made me wish I didn’t hate Rolling Stone so much. All in all, a fun book, especially if you are interested in music writing or the cult of celebrity (and, hello, I read Entertainment Weekly cover to cover every week, so I am definitely not pointing fingers when I say that). I’m glad I put it on my list, and I’m even more glad that I finally got around to reading it.
