Memoir is one of those great genre's that, more often than not, make us examine our own lives rather than the life of the writer.
Without exception, DeRoche's memoir is an eye-opening, funny, and beautiful look at love and the way it challenges us (even if that means sailing a boat in the Pacific ocean!)
