I read "Look Me In The Eyes" before reading this and somehow I expected... more.

More fun. More humor.

It IS full of little weird and fun things but a bit disjointed.

Very bizarre memoir. Very dysfunctional childhood. Mother gave guardianship to her psychiatrist when he was 13.

Now we know what would happen if a Jackie Collins novel mated with a Stephen King novel and the story was made into a National Lampoon movie. This is a bizarre story of two dysfunctional families that is very-well written and oddly funny. It's a testament to human resilience that the author didn't grow up to be a serial killer.
