Dear Mr. YouDear Mr. You by Mary-Louise Parker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A memoir of the actress's life told as a series of letters to various people, not necessarily the people you expect. For example, she tells the story of the birth of her son in a letter to the orderly who tried unsuccessfully to take him to the nursery the night he was born. Others are people she's never met, people she's only met in passing, or ex-lovers or crushes. This is not a celebrity vanity project; Parker is a keenly observant sophisticated writer and her book is full of life in all its splendor - humor, heartache, bad mistakes, chance coincidences.

[I received an e-galley of this book through Netgalley.]
