Like Zoe Greene, I fell in love with U2 when I heard The Joshua Tree in 1987. U2 is a through-line in My Thirty-First Year (And Other Calamities) and has been a through-line in my life for 35 years. Their music has evoked, released, identified, mirrored, and helped me process my emotions, and the unfettered joy I get from unwrapping their albums, listening to their music—and holy shit, seeing them live—is nothing less than magic.

my best U2 moment

Watching Bono laugh at my best concert buddy, Gaby, and me—just two grown-ass women squealing and dancing and freaking out in front of the stage—during a 2017 concert in Chicago.
