What Members Thought

Had I not read Patchett's book "Truth and Beauty," it is likely I never would have known to read Grealy's, "Autobiography of a Face." My strongest criticism of this book; I found Patchett's book provided more insight into Lucy's story than Lucy's own book. Lucy is primarily a poet a heart, and her poetic nature was the most special aspect of this book.

I wish she was still around to tempt me with more of her writings. It is a terrible loss to lose such a talented poet so early in life.
