Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Writers are notoriously poor assessors of their own work. But in the case of The Junket, Mike Albo does a stand-up job. So what is The Junket? On the one hand, it's "a memoir with a fictional $3,000 sheer Thai silk veil lightly draped over it." On the other, it's about "the plight of the freelance writer in our compromised economy." Finally, it's about the author's "long-term relationship with the most exciting but unreliable boyfriend of all: New York City." Kudos to Albo for such a revealing take on his own work, but he left out a few things. In tracing the story of his fall from grace at a very high-profile and coyly euphemized "New York Paper," The Junket is also charming, charismatic, and very funny. Albo is an unapologetic artsy-fartsy type, resolved to make ends meet by writing a lot of shill for high-end products he can't afford. But when the culture of freebies that permeates his chosen field catches up with him, readers win out. Go ahead: laugh at his expense. --Jason Kirk
