The right balance,
This review is from: Love in Condition Yellow: A Memoir of an Unlikely Marriage (Hardcover)
I loved this book! Memoirs are hard - and Sophia Raday has written an engaging one that feels complex enough to keep a reader intrigued even if they didn't directly relate to her experience. Interweaving politics, romance, love, marriage, setting, and history, I felt she added depth and weight to what has the potential to be the most flyaway of topics - "this is how we fell in love". There are so many ways in which her story can be relevant to a myriad of readers. I find her writing to be introspective without being narcissistic and particularly enjoyed the structure of the chapters - each with its appropriate reference lead-in. I definitely recommend it and would read it again.
