I love this writer, and the movie based on this book was pretty good, too.

What I liked: It’s another example of first-person plural narration that works really well. It also reminds me of the writearound technique magazine writers use when they can’t interview the subject of their story (see “Frank Sinatra Has a Cold” by Gay Talese).
What I didn’t like: No complaints, although I think I would have understood the book differently if I hadn’t seen the movie (and hadn’t had the Air soundtrack running through my head the entire time).
What I learned: Sofia Coppola did a kickin’ job on the adaptation.
