    One time I saw Cake play at an outdoor festival and the singer had a cold and he tried to get a lot of audience participation to cover the fact that he wasn t really there When they finished, I thought, Huh, I wonder what it s like to see Cake play live That s kind of the feeling this novella gave me I only read A Love Made Out of Nothing like she was relating a story someone else told her and she didn t know what to do with all the parts.
