Carry the Dog by Stephanie Gangi

It’s always a little awkward to participate in a book tour for a book that wasn’t your style but it happens! The book sounded exactly like what I’d love:

“Bea Seger has spent a lifetime running from her childhood. The daughter of a famous photographer, she and her brothers were the subjects of an explosive series of images in the 1960s known as the Marx Nudes. Disturbing and provocative, the photographs shadowed the family long past the public outcry and media attention. Now, decades later, both the Museum of Modern Art and Hollywood have come calling, eager to cash in on Bea’s mother’s notoriety. Twice divorced from but still entangled with aging rock star Gary Going, Bea lives in Manhattan with her borrowed dog, Dory, and sort-of sister, Echo. After years of avoiding her past, Bea must make a choice: let the world in—and be compensated for the trauma of her childhood—or leave it all locked away in a storage unit forever.”

However, I found the stream of consciousness, rambling style very difficult to get into. I tried many times over months and only made it about a quarter of the way though. If that style is more your speed and the above sounds interesting, you will love this book!
