I resisted this book at first because I found the voice so wordy and academic. But I ended up getting to used to the voice, feeling really involved with the characters, and loving the way she thinks about art and life. The whole thing was incredibly intriguing. By the end I couldn't put it down. I'm still surprised by how much I liked it. ( )

Castle's essays are extraordinary -- rollicking, erudite, hilarious, captivating. ( )
