"Outside Passage: a memoir of an Alaskan childhood" by Julia Scully didn't hold Club Desvelado for long, spare and brief as it is, but it was a page-turner in its way. Being fairly familiar with accounts of non-orphan orphanage experiences, particularly during the Great Depression, I wonder why so few people seem to have written about them. This reading-club set of questions wouldn't lure anyone to read the book. Scully seems to have found being a kid in a barroom to be just as much fun as I did.
