Description


Hailed as "outrageously funny" (O, The Oprah Magazine) and "deeply moving" (Los Angeles Review of Books), Sounds Like Titanic tells the story of how Jessica Chiccehitto Hindman became a fake violinist. Raised in rural Appalachia and struggling to pay college tuition in the big city, Hindman joins her first a professional ensemble. But the job is a sham: when the group "performs," the microphones are off while music blares from a hidden CD. On tour with this unique ensemble and its mysterious composer, Hindman "plays" for audiences genuinely moved by the performance but unable to distinguish real from fake. At once a coming-of-age memoir and an incisive articulation of modern anxieties of gender, class, and ambition, Sounds Like Titanic is "angry, merciless, empathetic . . . and] hugely entertaining" (Tom Bissell).

"A memoir of millennial economic ennui, a clever illustration of navigating impostor syndrome and the gig economy." -- @nytimesbooks
