I'm not picky.
I realize: perhaps my five-title list of the books that shaped me - including the three childhood favorites pictured above, does show the world who I am.
What’s truly important, though, at least to me: the books I read, the books I read now, showed and show me who I am and might become. Each helped me figure out how I could write my Happy Ending.
"This the story of how I uncovered my past, which had long been obscured by my family’s extreme circumstamces and by face blindness, a neurological disorder that prevents me from recognizing people by face. Along the way, I discovered a deeper truth: that even in the most flawed circumstances, love may be seen and felt."
