    WONDERFUL BOOK! Witty, moving, gorgeous writing.

    I love this book! It's witty, vivid, funny, and so moving - about a girl growing up in a very unconventional way: spending every night at her mother's posh restaurant, located above a club connected to Harvard. It's about having a rich (in event and experience, not money) , unconventional childhood with a bold, brassy mother and a Bohemian father - and it's written with wonderful verve, insight, and wit. The cover, alas, does not do justice to the wit and intelligence - and the wonderful writing.

    The prologue held such promise.

    I read a lot of memoirs and this just didn't do it for me. Lacking character development , let alone exploration of the characters in her life makes this book one-dimensional. Where is the life lesson? What am I as a reader / audience supposed to take away from this?

    As fiction, I might have given this a better review. As a memoir, it's disappointing.
