Touching and delightful. I also grew up in southern Indiana, though not in a small town, and as an adult I became a Quaker. Additionally, I attended what was then Ball State Teachers College in the early 1960's, though I did not have the infamous Dr. Satterwite for any of my English courses. So terrifying was his reputation that I carefully avoided his classes, in fact. All of the above gave me much to identify with in the story of Zippy. But all that isn't necessary for readers' enjoyment of Kimmel's writing and her story. I enthusiastically encourage you to read this book and the ones that follow.

This is one of the more delightful memoirs you're likely to read. Kimmel's quirky childhood led her to a career in writing with humor, grace, and a respectful dose of self-deprecation.
