    I have fallen in love with Angelique Jobelle and her extreme lifestyle, as well as her free spirit artistically. She is the heroine of Scott MacLeod's newest book, a compilation and expansion of some of the best ideas from the blog of the 2000s in which he invented her and then she got too big for him, the same way Flaubert credited Madame Bovary with achieving independence from her creator. In a way, Angelique Jobelle might represent the inner self of MacLeod, himself a widely acclaimed performance artist, for though he suggests that she has little actual talent, there is much in her joie de vivre and her incessant re-invention that everyone can enjoy, even if you'd hate having to sit through some of the durational work she plagues her audience with. It's page after page of discovering Angelique first at art school, in Alberta of course, where she is training for a performance art career that then includes her boyfriend slash partner slash collaborator, Tim Delano. The two of hem... More > view themselves as superior Canadian updates of Ulay and Abramović, and she provides documentation in photographic form of their greatest hits and occasional disasters—she learns from her disasters one of the reasons why she's so lovable—sheer resilience. But then she leaves Tim behind and goes on to conquer Europe as a solo artist, helped along the way by her Svengali, the American performance professor MacLeod. If any of you read LITTLE ME or FIRST LADY by Patrick Dennis then you will recognize MacLeod's vision of autobiography, but suffice it to say, he holds his on in the Patrick Dennis department and this book will have you screaming with delight at every turn of the page.< Less
