Hungry Heart: Adventures in Life, Love, and Writin - Jennifer Weiner

I liked this. Not as much as other memoirs I have read this year, but well enough. I think the big issue though is that Weiner does not at times tell her story in a linear way. She jumps back and forth and a few times I got confused.

 

Also it felt like the man she says that she thought about everyday of her life (not her husband) came out of nowhere in the book. We are introduced to him in fits and starts and I was very confused about the whole thing. 

 

I definitely get that she and her siblings and mother are close. I also now get where the inspiration for many of her stories came from which was nice. I definitely have sympathy for her dealing with a father who walked away from her family and only came back when she find success to demand money.
