The Impostor's Daughter: A True Memoir

The Impostor's Daughter: A True Memoir - Laurie Sandell Voyeuristic look at how a man (the "Impostor") escaping a vaguely "troubled" life in Argentina came to the U.S. to build a new life... a made-up life, in fact, and ended up seriously messing up his wife and all his kids in the process. The details are not completely fleshed out, but it seems like the trouble can be traced even further back to the Impostor's father. I guess the take-home message is that bad parents can really fuck up their kids.That's probably something that most of us knew anyway.My approach to this book so far has probably been too callous. The author put herself out there to tell this very personal story, and it is an interesting (and very quick) read. Too much celebrity name-dropping, though...
