What a disappointment, in view of the high praise this little collection of remembrances received from Goodreads friends whose opinions I trust. All I can say is that the book is mercifully short. I found the vignettes to be rambling, disjointed; I found myself skipping over a few phrases here and there, then whole paragraphs, hoping to get to the point of it all but failing to do so. Clearly, others saw something precious in these sketches that I did not, in which case the failing is mine. Too bad.
