Caldwell was born in Texas in 1951, in a land of plains so vast they frightened her. Caldwell's mother was a clandestine lover of books; her father was a master sergeant in World War II. These personalities shaped Caldwell. Turning to books for each poignant change in her life, Caldwell eventually became what her mother could not: a writer. Download and start listening now!

    " Not what you'd expect in a memoir with a windmill on the cover. Bookish Boomer leaves Amarillo for school, becomes hippie radical, goes to grad school, moves to Boston, becomes writer. She IS a writer--this is very well written. "

    " Parts of this memoir were quite thoughtful. I enjoy reading about a writer's reading history, the books that meant something to them. Caldwell and I were born the same year, so her perspective on the Vietnam War and the women's movement was intriguing. "

    " Fathers and daughters have a bond that can't be separated by time or distance. Similarities between the woman in the book and her father and my father and myself were numerous. The words "coffee and camels" brought so many memories back. "

    " I cannot say that I was fan of this memoir at all. I usually love memoirs, especially about ordinary people in ordinary circumstances, but this was a complete bore. Just a warning, Caldwell makes a TON of references to classic literary works which might go over some people's heads (like mine for one). It also seems like Caldwell uses these references to just show her large literary knowledge. Overall, just a book filled with literary references with some fillers. "
