“Micro-memoirs” that put you into the poet/writer/professor’s daily life, family life, and professional life.
Each vignette is rich and evocative. Most are humorous, some sad, others hard to read; the author has had a number of unfortunate episodes in her life. There are unflinching (and unflattering) glimpses into personalities and personal relationships. It’s a poet’s take on mini-memoir.
It’s hard to imagine someone not being entertained by a few of the stories contained. There seems to be something for everyone. The book is so short that it could be read in a day, but it’s also worth revisiting.
Recommend to Others: yes
Reread Personally: maybe, it would be nice to have around and glance into periodically
