So friend karen just posted a beautiful review of A Visit from the Goon Squad, where she riffs on the power of nostalgia, lost youth, the seeming indestructibility of our youthful bodies and worldviews, how every bad thing is the worst possible bad thing, and every good thing the most powerful good. Goon Squad most probably does all these things, and so does this memoir, at least for me. Published in 1987 and now out of print, Irvine recounts her growing up in early '70's UK and her globetrotti [...]

This is the follow-up book from Lucy Irvine after the success of CASTAWAY. Unlike her first book about life on a desert island, this is more of a prequel, describing her attempts to find herself as a rebellious young adult. Funny, no matter what book she writes, she's always attempting to find herself.Unlike her first and more successful book, this one doesn't quite take off. She come across as self-entitled and a bit cruel, and I lost any sympathy when she had an incident with an innocent anima [...]

Really good. Profound in a different way than Castaway.

I learned that it is very possible to masterfully describe what it is like to grow up an attractive but confused young girl in 1970's England. Irvine perfectly describes what it feel like to wrestle with odd feelings and an incomplete undestanding about divorce and your own body's power to attract people.She does very well at describing some of her scrapes and adventures and tragedies on the way to maturity.

Read this book over this weekendEnjoyed it, having read Castaway many years ago, I was intrigued about her earlier life.Seemed to pack a lot on Full of young woman angst , self discovery & a search for that romantic love " something" Will probably read her other books later to complete the journey

Ok book. Read Castaway years ago and saw the film. Her story in this book not as dramatic as I imagined, but more believable than other books read of same ilk.

Well-written, but a strange, meandering story.
