wonderful book of essays. her style is intimate, she brings one right there, to what she writes of. while drinking in a dive bar, she was gloomy, but none of that shows, here. one essay, about waiting to interview jim Morrison, waiting with the rest of the Doors, she doesn't seem to get it, that she is being brushed off. still, the essay entertains. why this title? I don't get that.
