      This book was not one that I enjoyed. Not at all. The only reason I wanted to read this book was because I bought a bunch of books from this author, and this was next on my list. But, I wanted to also read an autobiography, so hey, here is my review.This book was interesting, but not a good book. It really put a lot of information in on Jong-Fast's life, though and was quite fast paced. The book has a few funny elements but still didn't replace how dull parts of the end were.This book didn't see [...]

      Very funny book about a privileged NYC girl's young life with a famous mom. Somewhat snarky, witty essays on private school, her mom's multiple romances and marriages, dealing with famous people, drugs, dysfunctional family, etc. She's self-aware enough to know that the behavior she's describing is at times ridiculous, so the tone is right. Enjoyed reading about all her escapades.

      Download to iPhone through Kindle.If I had to hang out with Molly Jong-Fast for more than about fifteen minutes I would probably want to strangle her vapid, entitled neck. The book was amusing, though.

      Molly Jong-Fast’s memoir chronicles her childhood and young adulthood as the daughter of famous writer Erica Jong (Fear of Flying) and grandfather Howard Fast (Spartacus), with all the aspects, good and bad, of that celebrity existence. Living in a “townhouse with a pink door and paintings of ladies playing naked Twister,” her childhood also featured many visits to therapists, numerous nannies, and private schools where she felt like a misfit most of the time.Much of what she describes is [...]

      I enjoyed this more rereading it. The first time it was a 3-star book for me, but the second time I had a better appreciation of the humor and wacky situations. What bothered me both times was the acute brevity. There were several spots that begged to be expanded, with more detail to flesh out the author's memories of her interesting, eccentric family members. Despite this flaw, the book was a wonderful glimpse into a semi-celebrity childhood. I liked the bits about her mother's ex-boyfriends, J [...]

      I read this book because it is an autobiography (and I am hoping to read more autobiographies this year) and because Molly Jong-Fast is the daughter of Erica Jong. It was an interesting fast-paced read. Jong-Fast is, at times, very funny (and knowledgeable of pop culture) and a good story-teller, but the book lacked depth.

      A maladjusted semi-celebrity childhood sounds exhausting, and sometimes reading the volley of one-liners in this book is as well. But it is also engaging, funny and interesting. Molly Jong-Fast is still quite young, but shows the potential to fill the literary shoes of her mother --Eriica Jong, to whom she is never resentful in print--as well as those of her grandfather, Howard Fast

      This book is a bit manic in the beginning, but there's some funny stuff in there. Molly is the daughter of Erica Jong, who wrote Fear of Flying, if ya didn't know. She has some interesting tales because of it. And oh, her grandfather wrote Spartacus. Quick read.
