's review

it was amazing

Anything but a nostalgia memoir, this book dives deep into family dynamics (the author's parents died of Spanish flu when she was 6), US social history and the problems of memory itself. All with the inimitable Mary McCarthy voice. But you do get your quota of fun nuns, intellectual nuns etc.
