Drew Jennifer Morrissey fought her way from stringer at Rolling Stone to reporter for The New York Chronicle. Drew wishes she had money for Dean & DeLuca, but dinner's a Butterfinger Bar. Her favorite music becomes the Beatles after she's given a bootleg copy of their Shea Stadium concert. Drew considers her biggest asset is a self-deprecating sense of humor. She lives with two roommates in a small apartment on the border of Harlem. Midnight is announced with a serenade of boom boxes thumping hip-hop. At two a.m., the garbage train rumbles underneath like an earthquake. Drew hopes to move out the day her real life begins. Unfortunately, she's much too busy scrounging to have a life.
