I'm reading reading my father  and loving it, as I tend to do with memoirs dealing with dysfunctional families.  Ms. Stryon manages to convey the otherworldly privilege her family enjoyed due to her mother's family wealth and her father's celebrity, while remaining grounded and approachable.  You don't feel like she is a poor little rich girl a type I loathe, but rather someone you can relate to if you have ever had a holiday spoiled by an alcoholic or mentally ill person in your life.

  1. I definitely felt that reading Alison Arngrim's book - you'd probably love it, actually.
