Entertaining and interesting,
This review is from: Somewhere Towards the End (Paperback)
I'm not sure I've read the same book as some other reviewers. Two relationships in twenty years is hardly what I'd describe as promiscuous. She discusses family and friends with a great deal of affection and admiration, while being honest about her own shortcomings. Unlike another reviewer, I found the story of the caring for her long term companion moving without being sentimental. I like the way she finds pleasure and interest in life while accepting its inevitable disappointments and loss. It's not a life changing book - but the clarity of the writing makes it special. And finally - some people have the impression it's all about the author getting her leg over all the time with married men. It isn't.
