Janet Maslin…a bright, fast-paced memoir with an inviting spirit. There is real immediacy to the family portraits…When an editor suggested deleting 350 profanities from the manuscript of From Here to Eternity, [James] Jones responded: "You know there is nothing salacious in this book as well as I do.

His daughter has learned that lesson: she doesn't let propriety blunt her memories.
