Waiting for minimum critic reviews


In the Now is a brutally honest memoir about a move across America that sparks up pop culture nostalgia, philosophical debate, and embarrassing but funny memories as told from the perspective of a 24 year old recent college grad finding her way in the world. We follow her life in an unconventional semi-chronological format as she travels cross country as a young adult and reminisces on her youth in rural Massachusetts, going to college in Boston, falling in love in New York City, and chasing her dreams in Hollywood. She shares extremely personal, often funny—sometimes embarrassing—anecdotes, as well as reflections—sometimes graphic—on anything from Jack Kerouac, Star Wars, and U2’s Bono to sex, drugs, and the meaning of life. "Parental Discretion Advised"
