Read in August, 2009

this is a good book. not great, but good. the characters are strong and complex and compelling... elizabeth the alcoholic, bored, emotionally confused creative and tortured mom, rosie the smart and precocious child, james the sensitive writer, rae the chubby talented artist. snippets of everyday life are rendered with high emotional quotient - and sticky subjects [molestation:] are handled truthfully.

i had always wanted to read something by lamott as i've heard so many good things. but i also have a prejudice against her as i read a story of hers on salon.com a long time ago where she was disparaging in a "racist" way toward pit bul dogs. made me VERY angry. so my thoughts on this book might be tainted.
