The Living End: A Memoir of Forgetting and Forgiving

The Living End: A Memoir of Forgetting and Forgiving - Robert Leleux Leleux's memoir of the time he spent with his grandmother both before and after Alzheimer's disease is flat-out beautiful. He's witty and wry, snarky and spiritual, loving and loved. His trenchant observations are sprinkled with poetry and classical allusions and New York sass. I loved JoAnn, I loved learning about Leleux's dysfunctional but incredible family. I want to read his other book right away, and I hope he's writing something else soon. 4.5 stars
