Above Parr: Memoir of a Child Prodigy
Ellis Steinhoff's review
Jul 16, 2017
The book hooked me from the first. Parr can, for one thing, write. This isn't an as-told-to or as-transcribed-from-a-tape-recorder effort so typical of entertainers' bios. There are real sentences and paragraphs here, stuff many professional writers would envy. However, the structure of the book impressed me most – a portrait of an unformed child prodigy who imperceptibly becomes an artist. Yet nowhere does Parr ever state things so baldly. Indeed, she remains as humble, poised, and exacting a writer as she is a musician. Good read!
