she can tell you nothing and you'll pay attention. ( )

I enjoyed this autobiography (read by the author, too!), although I hadn't realized when I picked it up that it is the second part of her memoirs. It would have helped to read the first one before this, as this one seems to assume you know a decent about the author and her family already. Still, it was interesting to hear about her life experiences and about her family members and their adventures. ( )

Nicely written memoir, one that made me think about my own life story. ( )

A sobering, well written account of one's journalist's struggle in life, through her relationships, work experiences and choice's, good and bad, that she has made - and that has made her. ( )

I'm in the middle of this book now, but it is hard for me to read because so much of her lows in depression cut deeply to my own feelings. So I have to take a break when it gets really hard.

First words
If I had been asked to report on middle age when I was halfway through my fifties, I would have said that it was too bleak to talk about.
