it was amazing
bookshelves: memoir
Read in January, 2004

One of the finest memoirs I've read in recent years. Blunt lived an isolated and bleak existence on a remote Montana ranch. Rarely happy - and fixed in a role she never really wanted, she abruptly picked up and left. With two young children in tow, she pursued an education and eventually became a professor of English at a Montana University. Her move caused her family much distress - her existence on the ranch was bleak but I don't believe she suffered physical abuse from spouse or family members. The best part of this memoir is her writing: She is a gifted writer and I found every excuse to put off around the house jobs so I could return to reading this book. I keep hoping for another book from her fine hand. If memoir is your gig, do not pass this one up.
