A starkly truthful account of this novelist’s life, including her struggles with alcohol, her feelings of insecurity, her relationships with her ex-husbands and children, and the condition called blepharospasm that caused her blindness. With each chapter I experienced a different emotional response ranging from sympathy to frustration, disbelief to admiration.
