The alphabet mysteries. Everyone loves Sue Grafton's books.

Through the lens of someone who was shocked and saddened at the untimely death of Sue Grafton the first half of this book gives insight into her character motivation and the parallels between her character Kinsey and Sue Grafton herself. I felt closer to the author having read this book.

Excellent short stories about Kinsey. The short stories about the author Grafton were too depressing to be read at bedtime for me. the ones I read were good however.

A series of short stories featuring Kinsey Millhone fills the first half of this book and Kit Blue?s?Sue Grafton?s own persona?memoir of growing up with alcoholic parents?a functioning father and not-so-functioning mother?comprises the second.

It was fun reading Kinsey stories in short form and interesting reading of Grafton?s early life since she believes Kinsey is much like she would have been, had early marriage and motherhood not taken her life on another path.

I have read every one of her books and I think I like this one the best. They are short stories and the last ones are about her life growing up with two alcoholic parents. Very moving.

Not Grafton's best work. The Kinsey stories demonstrate a good beginning to future work, as these stories are her beginning. The Kit stories were depressing, somewhat obvious and more cathartic for the writter than enjoyable for the reader. Grafton has done much better with her alphabet series.

I loved reading the Kinsey short stories. The “and Me” part of the book was just depressing.

I'm not sure Kinsey translates well into short stories, not enough words to develop an interesting story.I didn't even finish it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Kinsey Millhone stories, though they are definitely short stories and I really prefer her novels.
The Kit Blue stories are much more serious and are definitely more autobiographical. They feel as if they were very therapeutic for Grafton to write, and certainly gave insight into what it would be like to live with an alcoholic. I liked the background they gave me, but didn't much enjoy reading them.

Enjoyed the first half of the book that contained the Kinsey short stories. The second half was not worth the read. Book is a very fast read, I read it from cover to cover in less than 1/2 day.
