Summary
"A deeply funny and bittersweet memoir of having grown up in an eccentric family of faded wealth and gentility (think shades of Wes Anderson's The Royal Tenenbaums) in which the father's failed dreams of being a writer put the family in the poor-house, drove the mother to weepy alcoholism, and provided Jeanne with a highly unusual approach to life--and a wicked sense of humor"--
Summary
A solo performance artist and contributor to The New York Times Magazine traces her early life in a family struggling to recover the grandeur and wealth of past generations, describing her father's literary failures, her struggles with alcoholism and her own efforts to become a professional writer
