    In brief, Winter of Discontent is a very good book, telling essentially two separate but interacting stories. The first is her personal story, how she got interested in skating at young age, made Category 1 (essentially national level) after 4 months of training, her two barely missed Olympic teams, her world cup successes and failures.   Later books include Sweet Thursday (), The Short Reign of Pippin IV: A Fabrication (), Once There Was a War (), The Winter of Our Discontent (),Travels with Charley in Search of America (), America and Americans (), and the posthumously published Journal of a Novel: The East of Eden Letters (), Viva Zapata!4/4(68).
