User Review  - Laura - Goodreads

This book may in fact be a great work of art - but I don't see it. There were some great insights, but the muck I had to trudge through dirtied them up a bit. If Joyce had had a good editor and the book were about 60% shorter... maybe I'd be on board ;) Read full review
