Review: Klonopin Lunch by Jesscia Dorfman Jones

Title: Klonopin Lunch 
Author: Jesscia Dorfman Jones
Publisher: Crown Publishing Group
Publication Date: July 17, 2012

Summary: By her late twenties, Jessica Dorfman Jones had dutifully achieved everything she thought she was supposed to: marriage, law degree, high-paying job, nice apartment in Greenwich Village. But she was miserable and felt like she was living a life that wasn't hers. Desperate to change her status quo and figure out who she really was, Jessica went about the business of making a change by demolishing the life she knew. She threw her good-girl image aside and set out to unleash the very bad girl she had never before tried to be.

Embracing the deliciously debauched world of sex, drugs, and rock and roll, Jessica leaves behind her sweet and well-behaved husband for the ultimate bad-boy guitar player, starts her own band, and parties harder than she had ever thought possible. She starts a band, puts her job in jeopardy, and causes her friends and family no end of worry with her illicit behavior. And then, in the midst of her self-created chaos, the wildest thing of all happens. She figures out who she is, who she most definitely is not, and what might, if she's lucky, come next.

Klonopin Lunch
 is Jessica’s wickedly funny and uncensored journey down the rabbit hole and back out again, into a life that, at last, makes her truly happy.

Review: I feel I have no real place commenting on this book because it is a memoir. I always feel like I might step out of place so instead I will say this. In a way Gideon kind of reminds me of a friend of mine. The book is well written and leaves nothing (as far as I can tell) out. I believe she told her story in the best way possible. If you like memoir's about people who turn their life around this is for you. I found the ending to be exceptionally touching.
