It is very sweet to work creatively with my talented friends. Please see my essay about artist Jodie Trapani and her Easter hats on The Hairpin.
"Perhaps the most remarkable thing about "Scattered" is its tone. The wildest, funniest, most pathetic capers are told with a disarming matter-of-factness, as if crashing Bar Mitzvahs for your next meal is the sort of thing everyone does all the time. And in the context of Justine's childhood, simple creature comforts like getting three squares a day or sleeping in the same bed for more than a month seem almost surreal. The author remembers such moments with the relish of a food critic and a seasoned travel writer."
