I finished this book, and I lay it down. The emotion I felt was gratitude.As with other writers in the past, I felt this validation and comfort in knowing that someone else sees what I see. In other words, I “get” Stephen Monroe in so many ways, except from the male point of view, which I was lucky to also get a glimpse of. It was enlightening to say the least.Each chapter was a joy to read, great storytelling, never dull or meandering, with a delightful cadence, words painting pictures in my mind of the most minute detail. The humour and playfulness woven into a tale of angst and redemption, the complete likability of your character who laughs at himself yet still retains his dignity. You are sir, a true artist.I don’t review many books, in fact I never have. I just wanted to say thank you, and let you know that I was left wanting more….to hear what else Stephen Monroe might say about life and himself through the unique lens of his unflinchingly honest, very funny observations.Loved it. 4 stars.Deborah
