On A Roll

Finished My Father's Secret War last night. It wasn't your typical World War II memoir as the emphasis was just as much on the relationship between the author and her father as it was about his experiences in the war. This book certainly passed my "No more nice!" requirement! I admire the author's tenacity to get the stories from her father in the face of his reluctance and even obstinance. It would have been so easy for her to write off all of his quirks and never investigate his past enough to learn the truth.
