I just finished it last week!
Man, this book is about <!--EZCODE ITALIC START--><em>everything.</em><!--EZCODE ITALIC END--> Love, sex, family, gender, war, country. . . it's got it all! And what a terrific first line:
"I was born twice: first, as a baby girl, on a remarkably smogless Detroit day in January of 1960; and then again, as a teenage boy, in an emergency room near Petoskey, Michigan, in August of 1974." <p>"Reach out! Take a chance. Get hurt, even. Play as well as you can. Go, team, GO! Give me an "L"! Give me an "I"! Give me a "V"! Give me an "E"! L-I-V-E, LIVE! Otherwise, you got nuthin' to talk about in the locker room." -Ruth Gordon, Harold and Maude</p>
