Ficbot This was a well-written and touching, profound little memoir! On the negative, it glosses over or compresses huge chunks of time, and I felt like in certain places, Strauss shied away from an emotional payoff that felt attainable. But on the positive, he is an excellent writer and the book was a quite moving read. I am reviewing the ebook edition; no obvious typos or issues, but some of the 'pages' only had a few lines on them. I am not sure if that was artistic or just odd formatting, and I don't have a print edition to compare it to. Beyond that, there were no obvious issues with the book.(less)
