IT'S FUN TO BE A PERSON I DON'T KNOW

IT'S FUN TO BE A PERSON I DON'T KNOW
$21.95
At first glance a reader might mistake It's Fun to Be a Person I Don't Know for a juicy Hollywood tell-all, given Chachi D. Hauser's background as the great-granddaughter of Roy Disney, a cofounder with his brother Walt of the Walt Disney Company. And to her credit, Hauser doesn't shy away from confronting painful family memories when considering how the stories, myths, and rumors surrounding this entertainment empire have influenced her own imagination. But family history is only one strand in this intricate and variegated weave that also interlaces the social and environmental history of Hauser's adopted hometown of New Orleans, intimate reflections on love and navigating open relationships, and a searing self-examination that reveals a gender fluidity chafing against social barriers.

Hauser's innovative and multifaceted narrative navigates a variety of terrains, seeking truth as its final destination. While the family company excels in fantasy, Hauser's story is that of a young documentary filmmaker determined to train a sharply focused lens on the reality of her lived experiences.
