Another memoir. Short one. Christiansen nearing the age of 60 delves into his parents' marriage which dissolved when he was five in order to make some sense of what the divorce did to them and him. He has much to say about his mom and dad, who knows whether he has pegged them correctly or not, but this is a sad, wise and touching book that shows we never really get over our parents.
