I loved it! There were places I burst out laughing and then other places that choked me up. I'm not sure I've ever read such a frank self portrait or one so threaded with insight. The portrait of your dad is so clear and loving and forgiving. And a surprise to find my mum in your pages, you know that your friendship gave her so much, that her last years in Australia were rich in experiences and friendships and yours was an important one. Bravos and thanks for a wonderful read.
