Picked this up at the library after reading the inside jacket cover:

A quick and interesting read. My favorite chapter is called "Afterlife with Father". Her reading of Den of Thieves by James B. Stewart brought back poignant memories of the discussions she and her deceased father had about the stock market. Her feelings while reading:

"But what it made me feel was nostalgic and wistful and sentimental. It reminded me yet again that what's in a book is only part of what matters; in the right circumstances and with the right history, just about any book can take you where you need to go, even if you could never have found that place on a map" and "it transported me to a dreamlike world....a world where a girl and her father sit up long into the night, drinking and arguing and talking about life."
