But Enough About Me
Print
New Jersey in the 1980s had everything Jancee Dunn wanted: trips to the shore, an array of malls, and especially, her family. But one night she met a girl who worked at Rolling Stone magazine. Jancee loved music, so she passed along her résumé. Soon she found herself backstage, interviewing a nerve-wracking parade of the famous--she trekked to the Canadian Rockies with Brad Pitt, was chased by paparazzi who mistook her for Ben Affleck's new girlfriend, snacked on Velveeta with Dolly Parton, and danced drunkenly onstage with the Beastie Boys. She even became a VJ on MTV2. She plunged into the booze-soaked rock-and-roll life, trading her good-girl suburban past for late nights and hipster guys. But then a chance meeting turned her life in an unexpected direction and helped her to learn to appreciate where she came from and what she wanted to be.--From publisher description.

New Jersey in the 1980s had everything Jancee Dunn wanted: trips to the shore, an array of malls, and especially, her family. But one night she met a girl who worked at Rolling Stone magazine.

Through luck and perseverance Jancee Dunn took rockstar's names and asked questions later.

Famous people are a quirky bunch.
