Entertaining, good plot line. This is a good coming of age story where self-discovery is the key.

It is difficult for me to write a review of this book. The feelings it evoked in me are so deep and sensitive I find it difficult to form words for it and yet I highly recommend it. I heard about Mark Doty several years ago and I know that he teaches (or taught) at one of the universities in my town and I was delighted to read about him in this memoir. He has also written several books of poetry that I hope to read when I feel ready to have my insides torn apart again. This man is an artist. His words poured inside me as if they had always been nearby and waiting for me to become ready to receive them. I guess I was ready.
