SummaryAdd a Summary
I read this book because I thought I had a great memory. I am always quizzing my family: “what were you doing 13 years ago today?” usually recalling special events. But I found out my memory is nothing compared to the author of this book. She can spew out details for any date thrown at her, including mundane things like what she ate. She indeed had a fascinating life being the daughter of an entertainment agent, living in NYC and California, which offered brushes with Ed Sullivan. But as a reader of her memoir, I found her life not so charmed and at exhausting at times with her type A personality, being a homebody, self-centeredness and resistance to change. The fascinating part of the book was the scientific facts it was mixed with. In a test, she wrote done the actual dates of Easter for 23 years and what she was doing in less than 10 minutes. Although memory shapes us, it had controlled her.
