Writer Chelsea Hodson sifts through a wide range of fascinating topics and scenarios in her first collection of essays, Tonight I'm Someone Else (Holt Paperbacks). She examines her experiences as a model and her work promoting a NASA mission to Mars, while also variously invoking games of Russian roulette, graffiti gangs, growing up in Tucson, her crushes on famous pop stars, and the limits and potential of her own body. "I gathered secrets like little pieces of survival," Hodson writes, and she deftly reveals those secrets with an evocative sense of detail and place that elevates even the most mundane memory into something startling and revelatory.
