I Fell in Love With Motorcycles. But Could I Ever Love Sturgis?The New York Times
Katie Baker: “No matter what Jamie Lauren Keiles writes about—credit card miles; summer camp; Adam Sandler, or a journey to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally—their work never fails to make me feel like I’m a tween again, lying on my bedroom floor, devouring some vivid, brilliant, and also highly informative slice of life in a magazine and thinking: ‘It would be SO COOL to write like that.’ With a keen eye for absurdity (and bullshit) and a generous capacity for both explaining and understanding humankind, Keiles is a writer who brings depth to the silly and lightness to the self-serious. And Sturgis is definitely both.”
