Wanted to like this--so much--but I couldn't!
I read that Alice Munro has switched to a sparser, less intimate style, so maybe I'd like her earlier work better.

"Woody Guthrie's 1943 autobiography is a must read for any fan of his music (but I strongly recommend avoiding the movie of the same name). Guthrie recounts childhood adventures which, along the lines of Mark Twain's novels and Dee Brown's memoir,..." Read more of this review »
