My current book type: Historical fiction/characters different/character-driven/comfortable
Why I chose this book: I chose this book because I’d heard that it was shocking and funny and that it opened up a whole new genre in a way– the memoir of the messed-up childhood. I was curious to see what was so powerful about this book, that it made people want to write and read about events that were so painful at a time in their lives when they were so vulnerable.
Is this book what I expected? This book is both what I expected and not.
