Then Again – Diane Keaton
An interesting idea for a memoir. Keaton intermixes her mother’s letters with her own story. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. I am not really sure what the point was and if indeed a biography should have a point at all. The book seemed like it was going somewhere, but it never really got there. I think it was meant to tie the lives of the two women together in some deep way, but it never quiet got there for me. I love biographies because they tell me something about the person and I learn from the experience. I grow close to the person and feel sadness and loss when I finish the book. Like my friend has gone. I didn’t feel that with this book. What I learnt about Keaton is that she is an accidental success, despite being kooky and scatterbrained she still managed to be successful. Maybe that’s the learning?
MY RATING – 2 STARS = ANOTHER BIOGRAPHY
