It's books like this that keep me reading memoirs.
This was, by far, one of my most favorite books to read. As soon as I was done, I wanted to turn back to the beginning and start all over, again! It was so enjoyable and funny and just fun!
I love reading about people; it makes me feel like I've met them and sat with them while they recounted life stories, just for me. I feel like if I were to meet Amy Dickinson, someday, I'd know her. I know her heart, her daughter, her life. I'd ask her, "How's your mother?". I'd want to get a recount of her relationship with Bruno and find myself really hoping it worked out for her. I'd want to hug her and say, thank you for your story - for sharing it. Then I'd ask if I could have lunch with her and her family the following Wednesday, simply to soak in the love and the ongoing conversation.
I loved so many parts of this book, it was all I could do to not jot down every quote I thought funny, fitting or just good. It touched my soul, this book did, and those are the best kinds to read.
It was a wonderful experience I hope to have, again, in the future. I'd buy this book. :)
You should read it.
