Tales from the Back Row

I loved the book of essays named Tales from the Back Row by Amy Odell. Tales from the Back Row is a collection of essays about the fashion industry. Each chapter in Tales from the Back Row is focused on one topic. Some of the different topics that the book talks about are bloggers, models, and celebrities. Odell writes in a smart and in a witty way. She writes in a way that captures your attention. You want to keep reading this book as soon as you start the first chapter.

One thing that I really liked about this book is that this book seems very honest. The writer, Odell, tells-it-like-it-is about the fashion world. Odell does not paint the fashion world in a good light. She talks about how the fashion world is a crazy world to work-in. However, she also talks about how great it is to be a part of this world at the same time.

I do not usually read non-fiction books. The last non-fiction book that I read was a collection of essays named Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay. I like to read books that are fiction books, science fiction books, or fantasy books. However, I am glad that I gave this book a shot. I am fascinated by the fashion industry. This book gave me a keen insight into the true world of fashion–all the ups and all the downs that you experience in that world.

I really loved this book. I thought it was fun, interesting, thoughtful, and honest. I gained insight into a world that is usually hidden behind closed doors. And Amy Odell makes you laugh all the way through.

This was a great book. I loved it. I give it a 10/10 rating.

Always with infinite love,
Selena London

  1. I think I know a lot about the fashion industry because of two shows that I have watched. The two shows that I have watched are America’s Next Top Model and also Project Runway. However, I still want to learn more about the fashion industry. I am going to get this book. This is a great update. Keep going. I like that you read different types of books. 🙂
