Smoke Damage resonates with insight, warmth and wit. What I love most about Patti's book are the vivid stories of her childhood. Her tales are at times hilarious, and other times heartbreaking. She interweaves her childhood memories, with her own experiences as a parent, showcasing how differently her children are being raised from a recent generation that yet seems so past. It's a wonderful read!

A worthwhile reading. Patty's writing holds your interest and lives where memoir meets story telling, where real life meets fiction. I loved it.
