This book did nothing for me except keep me reading in expectation of something memoir worthy. I picked this up years ago and kept trying to start reading it in earnest. Finally I committed to it several weeks ago.
She writes well, which is probably the only reason I was able to stick with it. There was nothing particularly intriguing about the family dynamics. It's filled with scenes from her life but almost void of meaningful analysis.
In a word: dull.
She "reads" unresolved, and that left me unsatisfied throughout the book. Even when she approached some introspection about her sexuality, she didn't move beyond pointing out that her mother didn't question her but also didn't know if that bothered her.
In the end, it came off as a non-committal story that wasn't sure if it wanted to be about her, her family, a travel story. it was all of those but none were good.
