Don't be fooled by the grim-faced picture. It was the only unblinking one. For me, words are worth a thousand pictures. I'm looking forward to saying hi to all of you.

For All Memoir Fans

I recommend Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle.(Scribner.) It's been on the bestseller list for three years and you'll see why. This is a story of surviving a childhood that has to be read to believed, and prospering, and loving.

What I'd like you to be aware of it the motif that runs through this book of Jeanette's father's interest in quantum physics and see how that weaves through the book and makes for a socko ending.
