it was amazing

Chilling memoir. Iversen's life has had its ups and downs and she tells it all under the shadow of the nuclear contamination of Rocky Flats Nuclear Reactor--where they built I-don't-know-how-many atomic warheads during and after the cold war. This is a devastating indictment of the U.S. Government's policies and actions. A Civil Action and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks are two of the closest comparisons, but it's first person from the victim's point of view. Highly recommended.
