it was amazing
bookshelves: memoir, favorites

Wonderful book...can't put it down. I'm writing a memoir and reading as many memoirs as I can. This one is great...she's such a good writer. This book has been very helpful to me as a memoir writer, especially in that it is a wonderful example of a writer infusing their memoir with their honest and authentic voice. That has been a challenge for me, but with thought and time and also with lots of blogging I have opened up and have been able to fill the written page with my true voice...not always...but I'm working on it.

Patty This sounds like one I should read! Adding it to my group. I managed restaurants for about 10 years and learned a LOT!

Nancy Hinchliff It's a terrific read. I loved it.
