really liked it
Read in July, 2012

I have never read such a fluid, poetic, personal description of the emotions hidden beneath an anxiously over-analytical mind. Allen's particular circumstances are very individual, but the experiences--of repressed loss, tension between anxiety and hope, and the long road of finding a personal voice--are universal.

The book is a bit padded with humdrum biography, which is why I only gave it 4 stars; but much of it is absolutely superb.
