really liked it

"I wish life could be edited as deftly as prose. It would be nice to go back and write a better story, correcting weaknesses and follies in the light of what I now know. What I've noticed, though, is that any attempt to trim out the dark matter takes away some of the good that was also buried in the muck. The past is a package deal and I don't believe there's a way to tell some of the truth without telling most. Wisdom comes at a price, and I have paid dearly for mine."

I have read all of Sue Grafton's novels about Kinsey Milhone who is a female private detective. This book was fascinating because Grafton shares how she invented Kinsey, and what parts of her life are similar to her. She also shares some painful, personal things about her own life that enables you to be able to see her, and life in general more clearly.
