Shocked :: Patricia Volk's Momoir about Beauty and it's Beholders
I love memoirs so I am always keeping my eyes open for a new one, and this looks great. On Fresh Air Terry Gross has a conversation with Patricia Volk that has a feeling of being a bit voyeuristic and that can be a good thing in terms of a memoir. I love how she remembers her mother, the details, the look and even the smell. This is a great interview for mothers day, it gives you thoughts of childhood and even how your children will remember YOU.
