Review: Chanel Bonfire
Chanel Bonfire by Wendy Lawless
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Chanel Bonfire by Wendy Lawless is a memoir that explores the author's childhood from a simple life in the Midwest to the life of luxury in New York and Europe. The luxury, however, rested only on the surface. At home, Lawless and her younger sister were subjected to an unstable mother who went from showering them with gifts and privileged lifestyles to threatened them real harm.
The memoir is at times a little difficult to read, thinking that a mother would really treat her children like that. But overall, the memoir is full of heart and humor. The reader can easily understand that although the author was brought up through all of these experiences, that her life turned out better than most might have imagined. It has the classic style of a good memoir and anyone that likes to read this genre will enjoy it.
