I finished reading Bryan Cranston’s brilliant but humble memoir (No, that isn’t a joke.  It’s both) about a week ago, and still don’t feel ready to write a perceptive review.  It seemed best to wait until I figured it out in my head relatively well before posting anything on the record.

Soon after its Oct. 11 release, A Life In Parts is at No. 9 on the New York Times Hardcover Nonfiction Bestseller List.  We can only hope that means a lot of people are actually reading this fine book.

Here’s a link to a Times article about the book.  It’s only a thumbnail sketch of something much bigger, and I believe most people who read Mr. Cranston’s memoir will be quick to recognize that.

In case you’re feeling intimidated, rest assured A Life In Parts is a compelling read.  You should think while reading, though, if you want to get much out of it in the long run.
