Meet Rev Jen. Patron saint of the uncool. Cheerleader for nonconformists, geeks, and oddballs the world over. From her tiny rent-controlled apartment on Manhattan's hip Lower East Side, she holds court over a wacky cast of friends and lovers with an unchecked candor that makes her impossible not to love. Zany and wry, Rev Jen will charm readers with these fun and irreverent true stories of her meteoric rise from art school misfit to neighborhood celebrity and all-around good-time gal. Whether she is dressing up as Doo-Doo, the hard-drinking Teletubby who's been expelled from Teletubbyland, or starring in her one-woman musical Rats, the shortest running show on Broadway, Jen's quirky humor and genuine heart make Elf Girl an anthem for misfits everywhere.

I was intrigued by the elf shoes on the cover and the blurb so I gave this a try. Although in the early going I found a little wry humor, eventually I discovered that Rev Jen was not so much telling me about edgy artists as about self congratulatory poseurs. The locale is real enough, but this book just wasn't worth finishing.

Despite the funny in-jokes about east coast art school and Maryland (Ocean City!) she lost me when she got into her boring poetry slams. Had to put it down.
