The Hypocrisy of Disco by Clane Hayward
The Hypocrisy of Disco: A Memoir, Clane Hayward. San Francisco: Chronicle Books LLC, 2012. e-book, 215 pps.
Clane Hayward grew up in the sixties with several siblings and a mother who was disposed to picking out awful lovers and gross places to live. Her mother and the adults around here were doing the hippy trip. Unfortunately for Clane and the other kids around her, the grown-ups weren't very adult-like.
sapphoq reviews says: Clane Hayward's autobiography leaves off at age thirteen when she left her family for good. Her writing is competent. She relates her memories without going into neurotic fits of blaming her parents for their irresponsible ways and poor choices. I liked this book. Highly recommended for those who like memoirs in which the folks remembering are not embedded in victimhood.
