Staci Layne Wilson made me feel like she was recounting her stories about her famous father & mother, Los Angeles, herself, etc to me. I enjoyed the style of her writing. I’m three years older than her... The L.A. she described was one I was very familiar with. I loved the stories about her father, Don Wilson of The Ventures (who I’ve been a fan of since I was a kid), her mother, Nancy Bacon who was a model then became a writer... Bacon was also part of the “Hollywood” scene in the late 50s & 60s. The next book I will read is Nancy Bacon’s, “Legends & Lipstick”. But back to Staci Wilson’s great book. Staci takes the reader on a trip through L.A. of the 60’s 70’s & 80s.. from the music scene to the movie business to her love for animals & Led Zeppelin. She’s a good story teller. She writes with humor and emotion. You can feel the moments she describes. I love feeling the humanity of a writer and Staci shows that she carries a lot of humanity. This is one of those personal books that makes you feel that you’re reading a bunch of letters sent by the author. Staci is also big into the world of horror movies, etc. Sadly I am not a horror fan. Hopefully she’ll write, produce, direct projects that aren’t horror related. Because I will absolutely love to see. Read, hear those projects. Congrats on a great book, Staci! Peace.
Being a San Francisco girl myself, i enjoyed her tales of the southern part of the state i didn't know. The stories of people she got to meet, either because of her famous father and semi famous mother or of her own initiative through jobs and her writing, are told with easy candour and lively wit. Every much enjoyed

I am fortunate enough to have read all of Staci's books (being an equestrian and a movie lover I was naturally drawn to her work) and must admit I was wondering how she could top any of her previous work.
Oh ye of little faith...
An amazing read, candid and moving. It is not very often I find myself returning to a book so soon after I have finished it, but with this amazing piece of art, I found myself re-reading chapters as I had enjoyed them so much before progressing to the next. Staci really is an inspiration to me, her style of prose is so beautifully written.
All I have to say is READ it. Well, obviously BUY it first then READ it, but you get what I mean.
But dear readers please beware, once you open the pages and begin to read her words, there is no coming up for air until you reach the end. And even then, you'll be drawn back for more...
