i rarely read a memoir, I don't know why. But I really enjoyed Diane Keaton's. After her mother was gone she finally read her Mom's 86 journals and really learned a lot about her Mom. In both our cases when your Mom is gone you can't ask those questions that you still have about her. Makes me wonder if we ever really know our Moms.
Easy, quick, fast read.
And here is the New York Times review.
