Despite being deaf and blind, Helen Keller composed a beautiful narrative of her life from birth until her college years. Her descriptions of her experiences are vivid and animated. Her humble nature resonates as she gives credit to her teacher, Anne Sullivan, and all of the others who accompanied her on her amazing journey through life.
If you appreciate his humor in his tv or movie work, then this book is enjoyable. I like his portrayal of a quirky neurotic who is able to find his identity through his interactions with other "supposedly normal" people.
This wonderful book carefully introduces us to six Latina women who come from very different backgrounds and follow very diverse paths after graduating from Boston University. The way the author slowly interweaves the lives of these women is fascinating and her detailed portrayals of their characters makes them come alive. We can only hope for a sequel!
I really enjoyed this book. The portrayal of Mr. and Mrs. X, the extreme of superficial, makes one think about what is important in life. The over-the-top description of their life in comparison to that of the nanny and her charge is sad and yet thought provoking.
