Dreaming of Gwen Stefani

Honestly, this one caught my eye because of the title, Dreaming of Gwen Stefani. Now, I've been a fan of Gwen and No Doubt since about 1991, when a college roommate of mine from San Diego introduced me to them. That was back in their ska days, and while they've steadily become poppier, I will still give them a listen from time to time. The book, anyway, is about a guy who falls in love with Gwen after seeing a program about her and the band on TV, and dedicates his life to preparing himself to meet her someday. It's kind of sad, kind of realistic, kind of fun. Feels like Vonnegut, Salinger and John Kennedy O'Toole all wrapped up together. Great quotes from No Doubt scattered throughout, too...

Book 95

Did he ever get to meet her? I was introduced to them when Tragic Kingdom came out, and that CD became my instant running favorite!
