Holidays on Ice (Review)

Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris My rating: 1 of 5 stars First, humor is something that is hit or miss. People either love your jokes and laugh to the point of tears, or they hate your guts.

The Communist and the Communist’s Daughter: A Memoir by Jane Lazarre My rating: 3 of 5 stars I think the Achilles heal of this story was the back and forth between the author's present and her father's past. I feel like it was shooting for the type of flashbacks found in films Forrest Gump or… Continue reading The Communist and The Communist’s Daughter: A Memoir (Review)
