Her humorous tales of growing up in an immigrant Pakistani family had me chuckling. I especially loved reading about the political history of Pakistan and its culture.

I am sure many people can relate to her family plying her with unhealthful foods (after all, love is food, right?) while, at the same time, being concerned about her being overweight. It was interesting to read of reactions to her weight when she would visit Pakistan as a child.

A interesting peek inside a Paris restaurant & the waiters that serve us.

This book was delightful. I switched between audio and library book. Stanley reads the audio and it‘s well done. I enjoyed hearing his story and learning new recipes. My family is going to have to endure my new obsession with Italian recipes!

Dave Grohl seems like a top-notch human. I listened to the audiobook narrated by him, which is always the way to go with celebrity memoirs IMO. Obviously, his music career is the feature of the majority of the stories. His three daughters and family life were the most touching and memorable for me.

Suet624 That book stares at me on my tall stack of books to be read. I‘m postponing my pleasure of reading the book. I love Dave. Such a good man and a wonderful musician. 2d
KathyWheeler I loved this book and agree that audio is the way to go for it. 2d

Finished this yesterday. It's an excellent memoir but also does a dive into things that women face in the US.

Another book where I had the wrong expectations of it. I expected a memoir about patterns, about healing, about creating new pathways. While I enjoyed what I got instead, part memoir part cultural critique, I struggled to let go of what I thought the book was. Writing lovely, format worked but does feel different, story weaving and connection brilliant.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I picked this up after hearing Attenberg read a passage at the Southern Festival of Books. This memoir, her first stab at nonfiction, is about becoming a woman, finding, and subsequently, loving herself, and finally figuring out this whole writing gig. Some might be turned off by the stream-of-consciousness nature, but I thought it worked well here.

Cinfhen I‘m a fan of Attenberg - so I‘ll be picking this up although I‘ve seen mixed reviews. Glad you enjoyed it. 3d

This book damn near killed me. 😭

I read a lot of tough books but this account from a Holocaust child survivor was one of the hardest to take. It's real and raw and utterly heartbreaking.

Take your time and take lots of breaks but I highly recommend

Monica5 I have this on my TBR List 3d
