Read in June, 2011

Frank Deford, stick to sports please. Why did you deviate from a successful formula and embody a dying mother revealing her past to her son?
The past telling is too long, more than half the book; too silly, love at first sight, a fabulous magenta ball gown, an Opel roadster; too ungainly, unabashed descriptions of Mom's emerging sexuality. Too little about the backdrop of early-war Germany and too little about sport, olympic swimming. More sport, less art please.
