Reviews by Beth Manuel
The title of this book is what grabbed my attention. It was a funny read, and a good book for young adults learning the ropes of adulthood or for seasoned adults like myself who may need a reminder about how to be "a clean person". It would make a great gift for someone starting out on their own.
Perhaps it was the beautiful watercolor illustration on the cover, or the red satin book mark attached within that caught my eye. I happened to open this book to a very touching poem, "When Death Comes". For weeks afterwards, I couldn't find the book again. But I have it now. The poetry is lovely and heartfelt.
This is a fictional story of Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley. He treated her badly. Hard to say how much is based on any truth but the plot and writing kept me reading it.
Story of a cat who makes 'rude noises'. Not sure which end of him they were coming from, but his parents wanted him to stop.
The CD is great and the story behind Sixto Rodriguez makes the music even more meaningful.
