Voice. Readers who want to dive into contemporary life in working class Queens, New York, will delight in the authentic voice of Tara Clancy in her memoir titled, The Clancys of Queens. A bonus is that Clancy lived two lives: one in working class Queens and another in wealthy Bridgehampton where her mother lived with a wealthy businessman. These contrasting lives combine to form an engaging story and Tara’s voice comes through with perspective and authenticity. She addresses her sexual identity with candor and clarity and the acceptance by her family was heart-warming. I enjoyed reading about an interesting life by a person open to sharing so many aspects of that life.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
