Publisher Description

From Prada to poverty-one woman's harrowing and hilarious journey
Ex-model Hogan Gorman was living the typical New York working actor's life-auditions and classes by day, waitressing and fending off handsy customers by night-when a wise (or just crazy) friend convinced her to ask the universe for a change. And she got one-coming at her at forty miles per hour. Hit by a car and suffering debilitating injuries, and with no health insurance, the fashionista attempts to bounce back into her (thrift store-purchased) Jimmy Choos even as she deals with short-term memory loss, stalker ambulance drivers, trying to stay vegan on food stamps, crazy judges, hot doctors, and unsympathetic government workers.

Inspired by her acclaimed one-woman show, this is a bitingly funny and keenly observed account of the cracks in our medical and social welfare system and how one woman's resilience combined with a generous dollop of humor helped her fight her way to recovery.

DaisyPink ,

Thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Ian Somerhalder tweeted about you and this book so I checked it out. I get very upset with the healthcare system in this country and how people die everyday because of the lack of care they get. Anyhow, I'm so sorry about what you went through, but you're a real inspiration!! Your book was so funny that at times I had to quit reading it in bed because I was afraid my laughter would wake up my husband. Thank you for sharing. :o)
