In this powerful, superbly written memoir, Conroy tells the story of his family - the violence, the estrangements, the divorces, the mental breakdowns, and the suicide. This tumultuous tale is also full of love, reconciliations, and lots of humor. -Helen
Comical situations as well as zany, off-beat personalities give heart and warmth to Sookie’s emotional conundrum. It is a tribute to family, friendship and the strength of the human spirit. A heart-warming feel-good read. -Pat
