Amanda's Art of Asking

When Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman visited the Jean Cocteau Cinema in September, Amanda read a bit for us from her new book, THE ART OF ASKING.  Sounded very cool.... unfortunately, we couldn't sell any copies, since the book had not yet been published.  The only copy on site was the advance copy that Amanda was reading from.

But hey, the wait is over... the ART OF ASKING has now been published, as of 11/11, and should be available at your local bookstore, or from your favorite online bookseller (alas, we don't have any signed copies available at the Jean Cocteau, but we hope to remedy that the next time Amanda and Neil come to visit).

Amanda says:
      " it's a book about....a lot of things. my marriage, my days as a weird street performer, my amazing band and label disaster,
my difficulties dealing with a best friend who's had cancer for the past three years; but that's all sort of a veil.
mostly it's an attempt to try to discover why all human beings (especially artists) has such a hard time asking for things.

i poured my heart into it. it's a really personal book.
it's also really FUNNY.
and sad.
it's a weird book.
but i'm really, really proud of it
."

Happy reading.  Happy asking.

it was a wonderful show
I just finished her book. Beautiful read. It is raw, to the point it makes you flinch. One of the few times I recommend the audio book along with the book. She has a wonderful voice and has added plenty of her song to bring a bit extra to it.

I have to say thank you for bring guest to the Jean Cocteau. I have gotten to see some of my favorite writes and that just make this reader day thinking about those times.
