Summary
From despoiling an exhibit at the Natural History Museum to provoking the ire of her first boss to siccing the cops on her mysterious neighbor, Crosley can do no right despite the best of intentions--or perhaps because of them. Together, these essays create a startlingly funny and revealing portrait of a complex and utterly recognizable character that's aiming for the stars but hits the ceiling, and the inimitable city that has helped shape who she is.--From publisher description
Summary
Offers a humorous look at human fallibility and the vagaries of modern urban life by detailing such offbeat situations as the despoiling of an exhibit at the Natural History Museum, the provocation of a boss, and siccing the cops on a mysterious neighbor
