Count me in as loving it too. The tone reminds me of her young adult books which I read over and over in my youth. She knew everyone in the theater world given the household where she grew up and her career in theater so the book is filled with great anecdotes. The details about her relationship with Sondheim are fascinating. She doesn’t take herself too seriously (including as to her talent or lack thereof as a composer). And I loved the footnotes. Yes, there were some sections that were a little slow but so what. And there is nostalgia in its portrait of a New York City that barely exists (if at all) anymore.
