Read from October 20 to 23, 2011

I enjoyed this book, even though it was something of a re-tread of The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit. LL does expand on the details of different events in her and her mother, Edith's life, whereas TMINWSS was mostly her father, Leon's, story. I am left with wanting more details of her relationship and the later lives of her siblings Isaac (whom she does refer to as putting her parents in a nursing home, to their and the rest of the family's objections) and Suzette, who kept a tenuous relationship after she left home, but never came back during Edith and Leon's illnesses and greatest hours of need.
