really liked it

Myla Goldberg is such a good writer. I loved Bee Season and was anxiously awaiting this book. It did not disappoint. Feast Your Eyes is about Lilian who is a photographer and a single-mother. It's a story about being a woman in the 50s, being willing to pursue your dreams, take chances, make a statement.

The book is told from the perspective of Samantha, her daughter, who interviews Lilian's friends and colleagues. She also includes journal entries and letters. When you listen to this book on audio is actually has a bit of a similar structure to Daisy Jones but it's a completely different topic.

This is a beautiful story about the unintended consequences of a moment in public, the multi-layered texture of loving both your job and your kids, the journey of finding yourself and trying to find freedom in the 50s as a woman. It's a beautiful story and it's beautifully told.
