I enjoyed this book quite a bit and had to keep reminding myself that it was a fictional story. It is a novel written by a male author as an autobiography of a female photographer. The supposed life of the photographic journalist is quite realistic and would have made an interesting life if it were true. The use of fuzzy photographs throughout the novel keep the fiction of an autobiography in the reader's mind even though the photos are all really bad. The descriptions of the photographer's female medical issues don't ring true - probably because the book is written by a man. Still it was an interesting story.
