Impersonation is the story of a woman who is a freelance ghostwriter, she is stuck having to balance her own mediocre “must make ends meet” world with the worlds of her fabulous subjects. She’s a woman who had her own dreams and is having to balance the reality of how life turned out.
So as someone who is not a mother, a freelancer or someone who would particularly call myself feminist, I was reading this book as a window into those things. And of course for the humor. To be honest, I’m connecting slightly better with her monster of a client, Lana than I am Allie, the protagonist. But then again, I’m a career first professional woman and Allie is anything but.
I’m about halfway through and really enjoying the anecdotes and humor of the story. The writing is sharp and I’m easily driven from page to page.
