Reading My Father - a book by Alexandra Styron

Reading My FatherReading My Father by Alexandra Styron
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

William Styron was a greatly flawed man shaped by promise and destroyed by clinical depression.  This book shows how Styron's depression shaped  his daughter to be a writer.  The book was really depressing and not that much fun to read.  However, if you want a book that examines the effect that psychological depression has on a family, it is a fine piece of writing.
