I'm on chapter 20, still listening because the narrator is good and I'm still waiting to find out what the plot of the story is... well, maybe that's not fair - I'm just not invested in the characters, if J doesn't turn out to be a psychotic drug addict OR if C doesn't stop being a whiny girl & grow up ----- then? it feels like I'm reading a 16 year old's diary..... but worth a listen if you like diaries (& the narrator is good - the writing is good too, but I'm halfway through and still waiting for the meat of it.....)

Would you try another book from Anton DiSclafani and/or Dorothy Dillingham Blue?
Has The After Party turned you off from other books in this genre?
Would you be willing to try another one of Dorothy Dillingham Blue’s performances?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The After Party?
I am on chapter 8, and I just can't listen anymore because I Cannot hear the word Joan one more time. The narrator is completely obsessed with character we don't even know. It's like, "Air, Joan loves breathing air. I have watched Joan breathe for days. Has Joan ever watched me breathe? Joan is constantly on my mind. Joan is everything. Joan knows that I am constantly watching her.
Any additional comments?
I am a native Houstonian, and I really wanted to like this book, but it's just about a narrators obsession with an aloof girl.
