Essayist Theroux has long captivated readers and listeners with her pitch-perfect rendering of the inner lives of American women. The Journal Keeper is a memoir of six years in her life, covering universal topics such as love, loneliness, growing old, spiritual growth, and death.More
"A subtle and sympathetic witness, Theroux is an equally ardent proponent of meeting confrontations head-on. Editing more than six years of her personal reflections, Theroux goes public in this elegiac memoir of love and loss, an elegant tribute to the resiliency of human nature." (Booklist)
“What a wonderful, wonderful book! I felt like I was on a little journey. It really made me think beyond the page. The Journal Keeper reads like a case study of a person’s life. You will read it more than once.” (Amy Sedaris)

Journal Keeper a Memoir

It doesnt translate into spoken word. I was disappointed. It was tedious. I didn't enjoy the narration, the content, the voice. There were snippets of wisdom that made me want to like it, but I found myself fighting to continue to listen. I think I liked the author. I would have liked her more for 5 minutes a week, or a month.
I can't say there's a least favorite character, because they are her friends and family. I like her relationship with her mother.
This might have been a good written word book. It might have been a fun and charming book to lick up and read a page from time to time, but hours and hours of entries read in no particular order, went from curious, to tedious, to turn it off!
