If you're interested in reading or writing memoirIf you're interested in life, go get A Three Dog Life. Read it as soon as you can. Heck, stop what you're doing and go read it today.
I may be am a little prejudiced because I've been dealing with the aftermath of my son's traumatic brain injury lately, but people this is not merely good writing, it's great writing. In a featured blurb, Stephen King says "This book is a punch to the heart." He's right.
I'd write more in praise of A Three Dog Life, but I need to read the rest of it. And you need to go get yourself a copy.
