    Way too scattered for me. There was no rhyme or reason to the progression of chapters/section/musings and I ended up reading bits and pieces. And I'm really sorry as I've been looking forward to this since I heard about it last summer. Guess I prefer my memoirs to a little more linear. ...

    Joely Fisher is not normal. But she claims to be. She's a drug addict who defends her continued use and an upbringing where drugs were just sitting out for the taking. She's an alcoholic who claims to have her drinking under control though she won't give it up. She's sexually fluid, saying the great...
