Craig Machen's memoir is without a doubt one of the best I have ever read, because of its sincerity. You never get this ''too good to be true'' feeling while reading Still Life with Brass Pole because this book is brutally honest and you can sense that even if the author isn't proud of many things he has done in his life, at least he admits it and doesn't try to embellish his past.

I think that what was the most fascinating about that memoir for me was that Craig Machen's life was so totally at the opposite of mine. He experienced so many thing I never have, and reading about it makes me feel like I was right to be a good girl. This book also touched me deeply because all the way through the book, you can sense that emotional and romantic young man as he is and see that he wants a good life, and a family of his own. He wants to be better than his own parents, be a good grown up, a good dad.
