really liked it
Read in October, 2009

I love memoirs in general, and this was a fascinating story. I saw another review that said the author's writing was "dreamy." I agree: it was dreamy, like memories often are when recalled years later.

It doesn't offer a perfect recall of events, and the main question that I had while reading it ("What really happened with the parents?!") was never answered. But, that seems right. This memoir is more concerned with how what happened created or effected the author's sense of identity than with what happened in the parents' relationships.
