Read in November, 1999

Like her memoir, this is basically a series of reflections on different themes drawn from a portion of her life, in this case, her father's treatment for a brain tumor. She reflects provocatively on her appreciation for her family, her friends, & the landscape that surrounds her. She is everything that normally annoys me--self-absorbed, self-pitying, casual about drugs, alcohol, & sex--but she's also so self-aware & self-deprecating & charming with such grace that I forgive her and appreciate her.
