Books to curl up with: a librarian's musings

Some how empty

I finished Mewshaw's memoir If You Could See Me Know. Mewshaw is an established writer, who receives a call from the past - a young woman is looking for her father. The rest of the memoir weaves back and forth between his passionate affair with her mother in the early 60's and his trying to help Amy contact her mother and the man who is really her father.

I finished the book, but must admit that I didn't understand the magic of the woman who had these men spellbound. I also was not sure why he just had to prove that he wasn't her father, even though he was willing to meet with her and everything. He seemed to really need to prove this. I wonder if somehow this book would speak more to men.
