[An] outrageously funny, shrewdly meta memoir.
Sardonic, moving.
A memoir with bite.--Martha Anne Toll
Brave and captivating.--Tucker Coombe
[A] most original memoir.... I salute Jessica Hindman for having shaped so well a remarkable piece of experience.--Vivian Gornick, author of The Odd Woman and the City
[A] timely, searing look at one of America's recent dips into the pool of post-truth... and a breathtaking breakdown of the hundreds of ways society tries--and largely succeeds--in breaking the spirits of young women without giving them the vocabulary to ask for help.
It's difficult to write a funny, angry book. It's even harder to write a merciless, empathetic book. But here comes Jessica Chiccehitto Hindman, doing the impossible with a funny, angry, merciless, empathetic book that's not only a hugely entertaining memoir, but an insightful meditation on a?time in our nation's recent?history whose strange and ominous influence grows more apparent by the day.--Tom Bissell, author of Apostle and coauthor of The Disaster Artist
Hindman is an emissary for a generation, repurposing its sarcasm and irony in a nuanced, humorous, and intelligent look at what it means to construct and consume fake realities in post-9/11 America.--Angela Palm, winner of the Graywolf Press Nonfiction Prize for Riverine
An evocative portrait of America's literal and figurative landscapes, an incisive look at class and gender, and an examination of what authenticity means.--Justin St. Germain, author of Son of a Gun
Sounds Like Titanic... is the definition of an overdeliver.... On top of [Jessica Chiccehitto Hindman's] ability to mine unexpected resonances from a story, she writes marvelously lucid prose.... [A] rich, powerful book.--Constance Grady
