I picked this up solely because I have a friend who spells her name Lizz, and I thought it would be fun to tell her I was reading this. Imagine my surprise when I found Winstead to be fascinating. I liked reading her story. She grew up around the same time I did, though her Catholic upbringing was far different, there were many cultural markers in common. Her abortion story is intense and important, NTM brave.┬áHer parents are hilarious, the way their story plays out poignant. I haven’t really seen the shows she worked on, though I have heard of them (I don’t live in a CAVE, just a LIBRARY).
The only part that turned me off was her need to make up words and define them throughout. Seemed labored and not funny.

Well worth a look.
