Review: LETTERS TO MY FATHER by William Styron

Another WWII book read by Lorri from Jew Wishes was Letters to My Father by William Styron, author of Sophie’s Choice.  Here’s an excerpt from her review:

The reader sees the emotional growth developing in Styron, as he moves through his early years. From serving in World War II to his university studies, to marriage and living abroad, the documentation of his life is forthright and fascinating. He speaks to his father in a candid manner, holding nothing back. The content is intense and compelling, and offers a look into not only the mindset of Styron the author, but is also a psychological study as to the inadequacies that Styron felt about his writing, recognition for his work, and the difficulties confronting him as a writer.
