No One Asked for This: Essays
Cazzie David has written some interesting essays albeit they are filled with angst. If she weren’t such a good writer, the pain she has suffered in becoming an adult would be difficult to get through. I selected this book based on reading some of her writing, not knowing that she had inherited writing talent from her famous father, Larry David. I was also ignorant of her tabloid-worthy break up from an also famous boyfriend. I really need to read more pop culture.
While relating painful and self-deprecating details of her life, the author readily admits that she is living a life of rare privilege. Her writing is so very interesting and yes, entertaining, that one forgets that she has everything in her life of material nature. That would suppose that the privileged never suffer, feel embarrassed, or feel less than. From knowing some women of famous fathers, I see that the road can be difficult in determining a separate and worthy identity. One would hope that this book is just the beginning of many more. She is readable and talented in her own right.
