The writing in this book is beautiful and spare, but the author comes across as very self-absorbed and the family just a little too perfect. The world written of in this book, with private school, a nanny (who works five 12-hour days a week to take care of one child when there are three other adults in the house), shopping splurges and plays in New York City, is very foreign to me and I found it difficult to relate to. Also, the random politics thrown in were sort of jarring, along with the name-dropping.

Miriam I hear you. I mean, it is still sad that their daughter died, but they are too privileged for my heart to go out to them.

Megan Thank you :) I definitely feel sad for them, but this was a tricky book to read & relate to.
