The book opens with a story about the passing of Delia’s older sister, Nora. I thought this was a sad note upon which to begin a book, but completely understand the choice of placing it at the beginning as a way of honoring Nora.
There are essays about living with alcoholic parents, her beloved dog, bad hair days, technology and bakeries. I especially enjoyed and could relate to the many insights about writing contained in the book.
This is a quick read; one I enjoyed spending time with.
