This excerpt from Elizabeth Winthrop's forthcoming memoir left me wanting to read more. The author's childhood was unusual, yet she finds universal truths for readers who grew up in more conventional households. Her "two fathers" alternated between remoteness and merciless criticism, yet she manages to find good in each of them, and insight or even humor in the pain. A tough childhood in the hands of a talented writer...the stuff of great memoirs.

This story was so well-written, but so short! About half of it was a sample of the author's fiction. I must confess I was quite disappointed to have to settle for quality without quantity.
