Unlike Ben, I haven't been reading anything too brainy recently. Must I say he is reading The History of the English Speaking People in 4 Volumes? Typing that makes me feel a bit like a feather head.
Even if you have never read one of her books, this memoir is an interesting snapshot into days when there were Good Humor men, lower life expectancies and stewardesses had to be single and bilingual. Though sorrow shadows her family, Mary Higgins Clark laughs at herself and life remarkably often. It is a concise and enjoyable read. She is a spunky, hard-working Irish Catholic.
