's review
Nov 01, 2008

it was ok
bookshelves: autobio-memoir, read-in-2006
Recommended for: people who think they are "normal" because they have been really privileged

i have written several reviews now that address my distaste for memoirs of so-called "normal" lives (which is to say, white middle-class american, no interludes of homelessness or drug abuse or anything unseemly), due to the way they don't unpack the concept that "normality" is actually pretty abnormal. this is abother book that fits into that category. the fact that i don't remember a single thing about it should illustrate the reality of its tediousness. the end.
