    This is totally the guilty pleasure read And if you lived in SF in a certain area went to certain schools it's like a real life tellanovella that shows you just how messed up your neighbors happen to be If you've not read Sean Wilsey's book 'Oh the Glory of It All' I suggest starting there then coming back to this one Sean's mother Pat Montandon fills in the blanks where Sean left off andor lacked the information Best part? The motherson book reading Nope you don't always keep dysfunction in the family You're smart you use it for laughs and importantly for financial gain If you like to read about the dysfunctional lives that take place in between champagne brunches caviar with creme fresh dreams this is pure insane entertainment Dede will never write a book If you're interested a Google search for a certain someone's carefully worded statements will tell you nothing while disclosing absolutely everythingOh San Francisco Forever in my heart

    I am not sure why but I really enjoyed this book I loved hearing the story of Pat's ascent and then descent and ascent again Pat did go through hell and she fought for her life I loved how composed she came across in the end the understandings she came to the resolve she had I love how she talked to her son at one point saying that she loved him but that she couldn't handle the push pull any being honest to herself and to him She also had a wonderful way of weaving her meditations and visions into the narrative without sounding too hokey I really enjoyed it and was and still am cheering Pat on Nicely done I hope the publication of her upcoming book will bring readers to this book

    fantastic i highly recommend it IF you've read 'oh the glory of it all' she does a really good job providing her own memoir but also mirroring many of the events in 'oh the glory' both books stand on there own but they are better together

    I loved Oh The Glory of it All by Sean Wilsey so I was looking forward to reading his mother's response in this book Too bad this book is just a rehash of the same events by a lesser writer Not terrible but no need to read after reading the better book Oh the Glory of it All


  5. Alex Alex says:

    Not a good book Her writing style is iffy and her life history just isn't that interesting She writes like she wants you to feel bad for her but you don't because you just don't care

    this is sean wilsey's who wrote oh the glory of it all a memoir about growing up in one of san francisco's most well known and controversial families mom's memoir which begins with her super conservative rural upbringing and takes you through her many marriages her climb to socialite status and the bitter divorce that spurned sean's book her last husband sean's father left her for her best friend who is truly one of the worst villians to ever appear on paper but this book is mostly about pat's work with Children as Teachers of Peace this group she started to let kids speak and convince world leaders that nuclear war is bad she had a vision during one of her meditations that led her to forming this organization which ended up getting massive publicity she writes a lot about travelling with the kids the kids themselves and her inner struggle to stop death and destruction the writing is cheesy often trite but its a book you love reading because of all the juice and all the background and the title takes the cake

    I just finished Sean Wilsey's Oh the Glory of It All which has made me come back to this book and write a brief summary of my impressions I read this book 3 year ago Some one gave me the book saying she couldn't think of anyone else who would want to read it Hmmm Anyway I started reading with no prior knowledge of the people or events in the memoir As I was reading I felt like a looky loo driving by a horrible car accident Some parts were so difficult to read I wanted to scream at these people I remembering googling the people in the book to find out who they were and having a difficult time putting down the book because I wanted to find out how it all came to an end I'm glad I read Pat's memoir because it led me to Sean's which I loved Sean's was actually published first If you read one you need to read both If you love to read memoirs these are great to read together and would make for great book club discussions

    I liked this book I first read OH THE GLORY OF IT ALL Then six months later I was in the library with my friend and OH THE HELL OF IT ALL was right there on display I was elated My strange obsession with this family would continue on and in another perspective I liked it a lot Reading from Pats POV and knowing the moments that Sean was present in made me feel like I know the both of them Reading about Pat's divorce and dealings with Al and Dede left me feeling disgusted I don't and didn't care for either of them It's unusual what prompts people to do and say the most absurd things It's hopeful too that through all the crap people will put you through to be able to rise above all of it


  9. Emily Emily says:

    if you read oh the glory of it all you need to read this book it was fascinating to see the mom's perspective and crazy to hear about all the stuff that she did i cant decide if she is absolutely insane or just really really eccentric I'm thinking its absolutely insane


  10. Erica Erica says:

    Worthwhile to compare to Oh the Glory of it All by this author's son about many of the same events But not such a good book on its own
