This Book Will Change Your Life - Sweet Charlotte's Seventh Mistake by Cori Crooks.

We recently had the chance to read Sweet Charlotte's Seventh Mistake by Cori Crooks and to say it makes for an intriguing companion piece to Dear Everybody by Michael Kimball or even The Lost Episodes of Beatie Scareli by Ginetta Correli would be most accurate we think. It is memoir as scrapbook, and its pages are filled with shreds of memory, swirling fragments of truths and untruths and the detritus, both physical and emotional, we accumulate across a lifetime. It is beautiful and dissonant. And it just might change your life.
