really liked it
Read in November, 2011

This coming-of-age memoir goes beyond Maynard's writing life to explore the heartbreaks and triumphs of her life growing up with brilliant parents as well as her short romance at age 18 with J.D. Salinger, a subsequent failed marriage, and her struggle to rebuild at mid-life. Maynard has taken a long hard look at herself and made a brave/courageous attempt to tell it how it was. I was fascinated with her account of her life as well as her experiences with Jerry Salinger.
