Staff Reviews


Jeannie Vanasco has deconstructed the concept of memoir and offers us not just her memories, but her evolving "guiding intelligence" which is, she suggests, "the real plot of memoir." Vanasco's story centers on her father's death, a half-sister who died before she was born, and her spin into madness as she struggles to tell the story she promised her father she would write in his honor. What shines throughout this book is her stunning generosity of spirit. Enjoy. — From Dana
