Good but characters are self-centered
I love Steve Martin yadda yadda brilliant comedian yadda yadda BUT his writing... I wont go into why it reminds me of the stuff you encounter in Fiction Workshop 101 because all of the other people who did not let this book off easy have already done a fantastic job of that. I will say that It's not completely without feeling or insight, it's just written in a non-literary way. Like a treatment for a screenplay. I think that clearly this was Steve Martin's way of ticking one off the ol bucket list. Write a novel (I know it's technically a novella). Check. Now let's see about becoming a country music star...
I really liked this book, although it wasn't quite as good as I expected. It made a good trip down memory lane, though!
