    life in all it's glory (for some)

    From the opening lines to the final words there is emotion, raw pain and agonizing laughter. This open door, nothing-left-unsaid memoir is a strange one-sided look at Wilsey's family, childhood and parental obsessions. Family turmoil, family strife, poor-little-rich boy and wonderfully compelling even if at times the prose can be over-long, lacking editing and the formatting annoying. At different moments you want to tell them to 'get a life and move on' and then remember that this is the story of their life.

    Incredible

    After finishing this book a few days ago, I find myself still thinking about about how Sean survived such an upbringing. Survival of the fittest seems appropriate here. His memoir has a Dickensian quality, but instead of depicting the lowest class structure, the pendulum has swung to the upper crust. Clearly the extreme in class structures have a lot of horror in common.
