Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations by Mira Jacob

Thu, 05/30/2019 - 12:11pm -- BHanley

Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations is a superb treatise on the author’s life, purposefully meandering from childhood to cultural identity, marriage, having children, being an Indian-American, writing, in-laws, the 2016 election, and more. There's a lot of ground covered in this memoir. Its potency is further intensified and enriched by pictures and illustrations. Words can't always capture a look that a singular drawing does. If you were looking for a book or memoir to help process the 2016 election, as well as find meaning and thoughtful words in today's climate, I highly recommend this book. I similarly recommend this to those who want to read a good memoir, and step into another person's world unlike your own (but will find it is all the same).
