It‘s a slowly developing, character driven story which touches on a number of hot button topics - white privilege, economic differences, abortion and transracial adoption - without seeming preachy or didactic. Enjoyable read - makes you think.
A bunch of little pieces by David - some touching, some awkward and other being laugh out loud funny. David uses his diary in an outward focused way - to reflex on the things (trivial or substantive) that he encounters on a daily basis. The most interesting thing is that he goes from a dirt poor dropout to a best selling author with multiple abodes across Europe and it happens so seamlessly you hardly realize its happened.
