"Frances Lefkowitz writes with grace,
wistfulness, melancholy, and strength.
The road to self-knowledge is twisted and arduous,
but when it goes through a writer as good as
Ms. Lefkowitz, the ride is a delight."
To Have Not is a memoir of growing up poor, white, and female in 1970s San Francisco, getting a scholarship to an Ivy League college in New England, and discovering the downside of upward mobility.
