I am finding myself quite ambivalent about this read. Definitely enjoyable and well-written. The author is very obviously a wonderful and charming individual. Margaret Atwood refers to him as one of the great romantics, and after all - he purchased House of Anansi Press, so he's very definitely "one of our own." I think I'm having some gender-bias thing going on here, because I didn't enjoy this book nearly so much as I have enjoyed similar memoirs written by women such as Isak Dinesen or Beryl Markham. Nevertheless, this was a life-changing experience for Mr. Griffin and he shares it very generously with us.
