This book seems to be a collection of articles written to be used for different purposes.
If you skip the ones that have no meaning to you, and just read the ones that you do have an interest in, you will enjoy those essays enormously. Insightful, interesting, moving, unexpected writing. I recommend the chapters on Liberia, Dead Men Laughing (the comic timing of her stand up comedian relative), Accidental hero (her father's time in WW II), her notes on an Oscar weekend. (I meant to give the book 4 stars, but hit the computer screen at the wrong place, and apparently can't be changed)

Even after a second attempt, I found this book too academic, in the worst sense.
