I love Patton Oswalt generally, but this was terrible. It seemed to be mostly stream of consciousness writing with LOTS of obscure references to things in the 80's that I was too young to remember. If you're nostalgic for that time, however, some of this may appeal to you.
I have listened to both "shanghai girls" and "dreams of joy". This title is not nearly as compelling. It is slow paced, and frustrating. Skip it.
I loved this book. The narrator is fabulous, the book is funny, fast paced, and truthful. Great listen.
