Just finished this today. Loved it! I guess there is controversy over whether is it true or not. Read it as if it is fiction; it will be delightful. It's not kid friendly so don't be reading it to the kiddies for bed time stories. And if you're squeamish of the all forbidden "F" word DON'T read it. Although if you can let that go just this once it may be nice to try something different; just a thought.
