I won this book from the Goodreads First Reads program. Primarily the book deals with the author's relationship with a foreign news correspondent and their life abroad. While I appreciated how Torregrosa was so honest about her own behavior and feelings, it was difficult for me to like either her or her girlfriend or root for their turbulent relationship. I wish that the book had focused more on the experiences of living abroad and reporting on revolutions than on a couple's quarrels.
