"As one of the head writers for my tv show Maron, Michael was essential in helping me portray myself honestly. I'm very happy and impressed that he was able to apply his craft to himself. It's not easy to put your authentic you out there. Michael did a beautiful job of it with A Paper Orchestra."

Laura San Giacomo

"It’s hard to see the letters I’m typing because my eyes are still misty. Michael was a writer on a show I did, and I know he’s funny. That’s his gift and profession. I did laugh out loud—that I expected. But what I appreciated the most was being led into his thoughts, down the path to his deepest confessions and deepest loves. Good storytelling also leads us to ourselves, our memories, our beliefs. Personal and powerful. I loved the journey."

"I found myself laughing and loving the wit which Michael Jamin tells his stories, only to be blindsided by his incredibly emotional, poignant confessions that hit me at the core.

David Litt, Writer

A Paper Orchestra is just the kind of book that makes you hate yourself for not writing yourself. It’s at times funny and at others sad, and sometimes manages to catch you off guard by being both at the same time. It’s a thought provoking, witty, and engaging look at human nature and the way we often treat each other.”
