Shallow. My bride has known for decades that I will read anything. She continues to marvel that I actually do read anything. John Glynn’s memoir titled, Out East: Memoir of a Montauk Summer, tells what he did one summer when he was in his twenties. Why should any reader care? Glynn faced truly first world situations in this recitation about a charmed life. While there is angst galore, the memoir is neither deep nor reflective. We read an account of a shallow young man finding his identity as he comes of age. He does this in a setting of great privilege. Read a sample before you commit to this memoir.
Rating: Two-star (I didn’t like it)
