Memoirs are a secret guilty pleasure of mine and this one is above average. It really is quite literary.This is not a linear telling of Keaton's life highlighting her career and love affairs although she touches on those things. Rather, this book is deep and thoughtful focusing on her creative mother and their relationship. I found it extremely moving and heart-wrenching. I think Keaton is a one-of-a-kind, a real artist and this is a very brave book.
