given all the people who have loved it!
I found Macdonald's fascination with White to be...well...fascinating.
A man whose life disturbed me.
Macdonald divulges that she spent the first few weeks of her life in an "incubator, full of tubes, under electric light," since she was so tiny. However, her twin brother wasn't as fortunate. He died soon after being born.
I can feel the silences between both our heartbeats coincide.
Suffice it to say, this is one of the most heartfelt and genuine reading experiences
I have had in a very long time.
I believe it is in Macdonald's lack of trying to "entertain" that she succeeds
so well in pulling the reader into her life, warts and all!
I encourage you to give this one a try if you're at all interested!
