As Seen on TV: Provocations
Feb 15, 2010
Grealy was an interesting writer with a wild imagination. This collection of essays covers a wide section of her life from childhood to what happened after the success of "Autobiography of a Face." After reading "Truth & Beauty" by Ann Patchett, I know that Grealy was hounded by her editors to finish this book. That might explain the varied quality of these essays. Some are lovely and well written and others read like rushed assignments for magazines. My favorites were "The Yellow House" "The Girls" and "The Story So Far." Beautiful essays from a talented and troubled writer.
