ok- i am a lover of memoirs. but i have to admit i have not made it past 51. the writer just kind of blobs along with all this extra noise... and whats with the italics? i dont know. i have read some books that were like pulling teeth with no pain meds- this books looks to be one of those. i do plan on keeping this book a bit longer to see if i can read some more and get into it- i will update this review when i (hopefully) manage to finish this book.
