Calm, clear-eyed, and beautifully written memoir of the author's year as administrative assistant to J.D. Salinger's literary agent. Slyly funny, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, but also kind and thoughtful. The author, who does the Audible narration, has a gorgeous voice and carries off her pitch-perfect dialogue. If I could read this book every day, I would. You don't need to have read Salinger or even to like Salinger to love this book. After all, the author had not read Salinger--had avoided reading Salinger--when she got her job. I look forward to listening to Joanna Rakoff's first book, A Fortunate Age.
“AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY”
I loved listening to every minute of Joanna Rakoff's nonfiction narrative about her first job in the world of New York publishing after she left graduate school. Rakoff is a terrific narrator for her own work, too. I've returned to this audiobook several times to listen again to parts--it's good enough to inspire multiple listens.
