Market Monday: Picks of the Week - April 23, 2014 New Releases

Book of the Week

Over Easy by Mimi Pond

A fast-paced memoir about diners, drugs, and California in the 1970s. Over Easy is equal parts time capsule of late 1970s life in California - with its deadheads, punks, disco rollers, casual sex and drug use - and bildungsroman of a young woman from naïve, sexually inexperienced art-school dropout to self-aware, self-confident artist. Mimi Pond’s chatty, slyly observant anecdotes create a compelling portrait of a distinct moment in time. Over Easy is an immediate, limber, and precise memoir narrated with an eye for the humor in every situation.
