An "Entertainment Weekly" Editor's Choice
A "People" Great Read
"An edgy, honest and bittersweet account . . . without a drop of
self-pity."--"Los Angeles Times
""Much more than a memoir . . . a wonderfully well-written, funny
book that stands alone as a story of letting your failures become
what make you a success."--"Bust "magazine
It was 1994: post-Liz Phair, mid-Courtney Love, just shy of
Alanis Morissette. After seven years of slogging it out in the
Boston music scene, Jen Trynin gave "making it" one last shot. It
worked. Major labels offered millions of dollars in deals.
"Billboard" put her on the cover. Everyone knew she was the Next
Big Thing. But then she wasn't. Catapulted to the edge of rock
stardom Trynin plummeted back down to earth. "Everything I'm
Cracked Up to Be" is the story of a girl who got what she wished
for--and lived happily ever after anyway."
""Hilarious . . . expertly observed . . . At once bittersweet and
laugh-out-loud funny, it captures the music biz at its most
""I've read enough biz books to be certain this is one of the best
. . . Read it quick."--Robert Christgau, "The Village Voice" Jen
Trynin lives in Boston with her husband and daughter. This is her
first book. She still rocks, when she feels like it. For more:
