13.0% "Reading this book as slowly as possible because I want to savor it. I don't think I'll ever love another family "memoirist" the way I cherish Bechdel. GOD, she's so smart and so good."

31.0% "WELL, wow, this is making me have a lot of feelings. For example, the violent and simultaneous polarities of OH GOD ALMOST THREE HUNDRED WHOLE PAGES OF THIS, IT'S TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE... and OH GOD I'M NOT SURE I CAN HANDLE ANOTHER TWO HUNDRED PAGES BECAUSE I AM AFRAID OF THIS BOOK."
