This memoir, written and performed by Rickie Lee Jones, is almost as lyrical as her music. It includes music sung by her. Being familiar with and liking some of her music, I found this memoir to be very interesting, although it's long and drags a bit at times. Unless you're a fan of Rickie Lee Jones or want to learn more about her, you may prefer to give this audiobook a pass.
