I'm not really one for memoirs, unless it's a person that I really know and admire. However, I really like the premise of this book, the way the author examines life from the lens of her surroundings. I appreciate how each of the characters plays a role in her study of the neighborhood. It seems so practical - so much of our lives are influenced by those that surround us. The cashier at the market, the bus driver, the security guard.....they all impact our days and our experiences. However, so few people stop to think about that impact and how much weight it can carry. I really enjoyed this perspective.
