really liked it

excellant book ., learning about self and other through decisions made in life. looking for someone to fill the gaps when it is yourself that has the potential. solitude so valued and yet borders on loneliness , and the search for an intellectual life filled with love .and warmth ,humour and connection with someone. i know more about myself now.

I warned some others, who saw her at another evening--- & they all agreed with me- so-- I couldnt read her book- just as well YOU didnt see her speak,EH????
