Summary
A debut novel in stories that follows one woman's life from age sixteen to sixty, and what happens when certain celebrities--Neil Young, Meryl Streep, John Updike, Taylor Swift, Karl Ove Knausgaard--start turning up in her private life, at the spa, in the middle of a breakup, and even on the operating table. Rose McEwan has lived her life out of the spotlight--daughter, wife, mother, ex-wife, journeyman writer trying to make ends meet. But even so, fame has come to her.When she is sixteen, Rose's parents send her to an arts school where a writing class with John Updike takes an extracurricular turn. After college she goes backpacking around the world with a boyfriend, and while their relationship implodes, she finds herself camping in a cave near the young, pre-famous Joni Mitchell. When she is back home waitressing, Bill Murray and Dan Ackroyd show up and whisk her away for some synchronized swimming. Bob Dylan crashes her summer cottage and won't buy groceries, but at least teaches her son how to play the guitar. During a trip to the Cannes Film Festival, where her husband's film will premiere, Rose becomes convinced she is being stalked by Charlotte Rampling. Treating herself to a weekend at a spa after the publication of her first novel, Rose is befriended a little too quickly by Meryl Streep. Having failed in her marriage (Gwyneth Paltrow dispenses romantic and skin-care advice) and as a thriller writer, she applies for a job writing ad copy, but en route to the interview, Van Morrison hijacks her bus. And in the somehow totally plausible final chapter, Rose finds herself on a camping trip with Leonard Cohen, Taylor Swift, and Karl Ove Knausgaard.Filled with spot-on social commentary, Jackson shows how the famous serve us in ways we don't recognize. But more importantly, she shows how the daily dramas of an ordinary woman's life are as engrossing and poignant as any luminary tell-all. Deliciously fun and incredibly thought-provoking, Don't I Know You? puts an unremarkable woman at center stage and shows how in the end, an ordinary life might be the most extraordinary one
