She also provides sly instructions on the fine art of the celebrity interview such as:
How to sneak a peak inside Madonna's bathroom and Dolly Parton's kitchen;
How to appreciate the grooviness of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonnet;
How to politely decline a rock star's offer of heroin; and
How interviewing Barry White can heal a girl's broken heart
Dunn knows how to get the story and, in But Enough About Me, she proves that she can deliver it as well.
If there was one thing Jancee Dunn was from a young age, it was being obsessed with music. Her bedroom was cluttered with cassette tapes depicting everything from Madonna to Bruce Springsteen; her boombox was constantly blaring - much to her parents chagrin; and her weekends were full of music concerts. Music aside, however, Jancee was a typical eighties teenager, complete with a perm that was held in place with countless cans of Aqua Net hairspray; and tanning with whole bottles of baby oil. The oldest of three children, Jancee was a musical influence on her younger sisters, and tried to instill a love of song in the both of them - in-between her impromptu bedroom garage sales, that is. As Jancee gets older, she stops her late-night Jersey partying, snags a job at Rolling Stone Magazine, and begins hobnobbing with the rich and famous. Making peanut butter fudge with Loretta Lynne; scurrying around Star Jones' glamorous New York apartment; shopping with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen; and being offered drugs by Scott Weiland of the Stone Temple Pilots. Even with her celebrity partying, Jancee doesn't forget her family, and spends much time communicating with them via telephone - in the midst of other things, of course, such as working at MTV2 and Good Morning America.Read more ›
The story of the author growing up was fun to read. I live in New Jersey so I knew the places she went. My family went school shopping at JC Penny's in Willowbrook also.
The book dragged a little in the middle, but it picked up when she dated again. I rooted for her to find another job and handle her friends getting their own lives.
She is a talented author who made this an enjoyable book.
I found this book because a humorist listed it as one of her favorite books. Now it is one of mine!

A fun, quick, gossipy beach read. I downloaded it before a trip to the Bahamas and couldn't put it down. She seems very down to earth and charming.Published on July 4, 2014 by Kari
