Review: True Stories from an Unreliable Eyewitness

By on April 17, 2018

The subtitle of this book is A Feminist Coming of Age, which is what intrigued me, and I’m glad I ended up picking this one up! To put things in perspective, I had just finished Pachinko, which is a great read but it’s long and pretty heavy. I picked…
