Review quote

"A reminder of just how dynamic a memoir can be. Sayer has crafted a spell-binding story of family mythology and betrayal that delights in the melody of each and every word rather than in its exotic subject matter. Layered with fluid, evocative descriptions that belie the eleven years' sweat that went into it, the book is the literary cousin to all those old tap routines". -- Interview
