I'm way too tired to even try and remember that for next time.
Hah. And I was just going to say I'm sure there's a lesson in there somewhere, but I can't put my finger on it ...

Lessons are a bit like a choose-your-own-adventure with this one.

Ha! Let's form a club?
I will be so interested in what you think of Under the Visible Life. I adored it, but no pressure. ;)

It is lovely. It's grim but in a charmingly honest way, without harping on about the traumatic events in both their lives. I'm really liking it so far. And the jazz background is just fab - I could practically hear the music and be there. No wonder I missed out on sleep. I was practically "clubbing" ... from the comfort of my armchair, that is.
Yes, the jazz and both women's devotion to it really made the book special.

Honestly, she had me at Autumn Leaves, but then totally hooked me with the reference to George Harrison and wanting to learn other instruments.
It's totally about them growing as artists but it is even more about them growing in their individuality. I really love how Echlin weaves this together to give that contrast to both of their family backgrounds.
