Those who have met Anne Robinson through her TV series "The Weakest Link" will find her book and its narration to have a similar style, although her prior career as a ground- breaking journalist and editor may be news to many. Robinson shows little mercy in her writing or her reading as she recounts her mother's harsh and unforgiving idea of house and home. She gives herself no more slack in her examination of her early adult life, which was a rather smashing example of the difficulties that can flow from alcohol, particularly after losing custody of her daughter when an ambitious judge in the early '70s found her unseemly as a mother. Robinson's acerbic tone and style leave no doubt of the bitter pain that lies beneath her success. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
