Have you ever wondered what it would be like talk to Parker Posey? On an airplane, with Posey as your seat companion, perhaps?

In this ingenious, hilarious, and enchanting memoir, actress and star of movies such as DAZED AND CONFUSED and PARTY GIRL, Parker takes us into her colorful southern childhood home, behind the scenes of the indie film revolution in the 90s, shows us the delightful absurdity of big-budget genre thrillers, and shares the creativity that will always be part of both her acting and her personal life.

With whimsical how-tos, recipes, and beautiful handmade collages, Parker gives the reader a feeling of traveling by her side, exploring and celebrating what it means to be an artist.
