REVIEW ✓ Love Affair Ely incestuous relationship with her father–a union so powerful it defines all that came after As their lives become increasingly entangled so do the forces of darkness and light that exist within us all leading to destruction for him and heartbreaking redemption for her There have been memoirs about incest before but Love Affair is a surprisingly moving and elegant treatment of a young life shared passion and boundaries crosse. It s hard to know how to review a book like this It is well written and it is the story about her father s brokenness and of their sexual and emotional incestuous relationship and the affects it had upon her life More time is devoted to the early years and the relationship than to the years of healing from it while her father continued to tumble so the person coming to the book with a similar experience hoping to learn about how to heal might be a little disappointed but then I doubt if there is a formula to follow to heal from such trauma anyway and you have to find your own individual path But it is at least an account from someone who eventually learned how to take care of themselves and build a good life

REVIEW ✓ Love Affair A searing literary memoir of a disconnected childhood a multigenerational upbringing and incest from the daughter of legendary jazz pianist Stan Kenton Leslie Kenton was the only child of Violet a stunning Hitchcock blonde and the legendary jazz giant Stan Kenton The story takes place on the road in 1950s America and in the mania of Hollywood a world of jazz clubs dance halls and onenighters where lives were lived on a razor’s. Ugh Kenton does two things in this book defends her abusive father and brags about her amazing amazingness Regarding the latter I don t know if it was a defense mechanism but good GOD she s tiresome in listing all the ways that her often shitty experiences and personal ualities were remarkable Maybe she was trying to be self deprecating Some examples Sports didn t come naturally but she broke all the records She was behind in material when she went to a new school but impressed everyone with a book report on Hamlet in the fourth grade Threw together a wedding but many guests said it was the best one they ever experienced Got pregnant in college and didn t know any girls in the dorm but they all came to her baby shower and brought her amazing presents She didn t even know their names OMG11 Eye roll x1000 And these are only a few examples the whole book is like this She also has a strange tendency especially in the beginning to take on a weird baby talk affectation when describing childhood scenes It s bizarre and distracting Frankly I m also skeptical that she and her father completely repressed the memories of abuse but no way of knowing now TL DR Kenton s affect is obnoxious as hell Not worth it

REVIEW ✓ Love Affair Edge Love Affair takes us beyond the bright lights and glamour into an intense claustrophobic world of a father and the only child of his troubled marriage As Stanley grapples with alcohol and his personal demons gradually his actions threaten to destroy the only real untainted thing in his life Leslie A true story of obsession tragedy and grace Love Affair is Leslie Kenton’s powerful memoir At its heart is the complex ultimat. The journey of healing father daughter incest is difficult enough without publishing the story for the whole world to read appraise criticise and comment uponI learned much from reading Leslie Kenton s story and certainly understood this particular situation of incest fullyI would have preferred to read the story in the time seuence that actually occurred ie the recovered memories being introduced when they actually emergedI believe that the human psyche is far complex in its presentation of imagery associated with repressed kinetic memory than understood by this author Sometimes it is difficult to ascertain whether the movie being experienced is the replay of an actual incident or is symbolic of a psychic gestalt What is common to both is that the psyche of the child has been sexually subsumed by the adult in either case whether physical incest has happened or not This is little understood generally and thus gives rise to much conjecture about recovered memory The damage to the child can be wrought by both psychological and physical possession by the adultI also contest the point of the author s insistence that her incestuous relationship with her father was a love affair She was a child going through puberty when it occurred It is the father s role to allow the daughter to express her blossoming sensuality and sexuality whilst setting a firm boundary between himself and his daughter Thus he gives her confidence and security as she experiences the changes in her bodyLeslie Kenton still sees herself in this story as a participant in an adult relationship ignoring the fact that she was a child and the love that she felt for her father became distorted by the abuse The fact that her father was an alcoholic and psychologically wounded does not alter the fact that he was the adult in this relationshipI also think that her attitude towards the incestuous relationship with her father is in sharp contrast to how she presents the abuse that Stella arranged and participated in There s possibly a much bigger untold story thereIt s an interesting book somewhat disturbing The writing style is in very spare language of a documentary of events and this lack of dramatics serves the material well
