Biographies on celebrities are usually adversities and no one craves for popularity or success than people who bloomed opposite to them. One of the indie-rock stars Mike Jollett was no new to having a rough, poor life. He grew up with his mom and brother in Oregon as their dad parted ways from them and poverty and addiction became a part of him.
Later when Mike has his first close pal he sees that: “it’s nice to have someone to joke with about government cheese.”
And this learnt from his book “Hollywood Park” which is quite away from his original mess. In his first memoir he makes sure to confine the ways of finding the forces which helped to refine him. He starts to pen down from the mind of a child and then to an adult who gradually understands his situations in life.
The book witness’s utmost compassion and precise detailing and we can see that his memoir is as good as any others.
Wow. I'm honored and humbled and excited to announce my memoir, HOLLYWOOD PARK, debuted on the New York Times bestsellers list.— Mikel Jollett (@Mikel_Jollett) June 4, 2020
I just want to say, you spend your whole life repeating other's ideas until one day you realize you have your own story to tell. Thank you. Truly. pic.twitter.com/XvNUG3ylFJ
Prior to becoming an author or a singer, Jollett was a kid who runaway from a cult. Till he was 4 Mike along with his elder brother Tony was in Northern California kids camp found by Synanon which helped children recover from addiction.
