What’s it about?
Parker Posey is an actress who is known for her work in independent films.  In this memoir Parker Posey creates a scene where she is on an airplane and talking with us- the reader.   She relates some stories about her childhood, some about her work, and some- I am just not sure what they were about.What did it make me think about?

“The first photograph I have of myself is of the moment I was brought home from the hospital.  I’m in my mother’s false eyelashes.  When I asked my mom why she put fake eyelashes on me, she said ‘you were so small, I didn’t know what to do with you’.”
