's review

really liked it

Patricia Parr discusses music and life in this homegrown, down-to-earth memoir about her life. Although she isn't prone to oversharing and maintains a good deal of privacy from the reader, there's something charming about her storytelling - you can tell it's true to who she is. Private, reserved, and a little bit shy.

Interestingly, the emotional distance in her writing is offset by the incredibly intimate musical performances on the CD, consisting mostly of unedited recordings. So, reading and listening, you get a three-dimensional depiction of the author and the feeling that you REALLY know who she is. I recommend listening to the CD while reading for the "full" effect.
