I bought this book because I read, "Snow Flower and the secret Fan" by this author and loved it! I started this one last Thursday evening, didn't read on Friday or Saturday and am almost done. It's not as good as Snow Flower but it's still good.
I read this in high school and despite the numerous projects/papers we had to do for it, I still remember loving it. Hopefully I enjoy it that much as an adult.
I really like biographies. I've read about Cary Grant, Dean Martin, Doris Day, Audrey Hepburn...(can you tell what era I love?). I'm really looking forward to this one.
