A funny and illuminating debut novel about family, music, and second chances, from folk-rock star Roche.
Annotation:
Suzzy Roche is best known as the youngest sister (and alto) of the singing sibling trio The Roches, although she has also recorded solo albums and appeared as a film actor. This debut novel showcases the same eccentric wit and heartfelt pathos of Roche's music. It tells the story of Mary Saint, a down-on-her-luck San Francisco barista and former member of the rock band Sliced Ham, who has hit a long, grief-triggered lull in her creative life. When she travels back to her hometown in upstate New York to play a concert at her old high school, and to attempt to make peace with the family she ran away from as a teenager, hilarity and poignancy ensue.

Praise

"A singer herself, Roche surely knows firsthand the kind of things her fictional rocker, Mary Saint, went through on that 'long Tilt-A-Whirl ride' from struggling artist to successful commodity." - Alison McCulloch 02/19/2012
