I read this book because I couldn't understand why a woman with a brain and an interesting life would want to participate in a Real Housewives series. (Still don't have that answer.) The book is surprisingly well written, and Carole does an excellent job of reading it. For some reason, the portrait of her friendship with Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy is fuller and richer than that of her too-brief relationship with her husband, whose illness and death she bravely chronicles.
Yes. She did a very good job writing it, and a great job reading it.
Diane's reading of her own words -- genuine emotions as punctuation.
It was fantastic -- as though she was reading the book to me.
I laughed with her and cried with her.
Don't be snobby about the fact that it's Diane Keaton and therefore not highbrow. Just read it.
