Reviews & Summaries
So many great book references. The first page has a copy of Anna Karenina drawn partially into a frame, and the entire story reflects a lot of themes from that book as well. That sort of reference is constant and I got nerdily excited every time I picked up on one.
There are a ton of great references in this book to other awesome works of liteature, and Alison does a wonderful job weaving them all together to tell her and her father's story. Truly an amazing book!
This is really something. It's a great touch how she incorporates so many author's works into her life story. Like using literary analysis on your own memoir.
