Very Short Reviews: Memories of a Catholic Girlhood

Memories of a Catholic Girlhood by Mary McCarthy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Anything but a nostalgia memoir, this book dives deep into family dynamics (the author’s parents died of Spanish flu when she was 6), US social history and the problems of memory itself. All with the inimitable Mary McCarthy voice. But you do get your quota of fun nuns, intellectual nuns etc.
