    1. Memoirs of a Dilettante is a fun, rollicking read, which makes the more serious, heartfelt chapters that much more resonant. After reading this book, you feel as if you've been let into a delicious inside joke and that Helena and Penny are just waiting for you to join them on one of their many hilarious and often ridiculous adventures.


    2. A creative, delicious romp through the life of your favorite dilettante. I loved the use of footnotes, not to be missed for their hilarious snark. The pictures added a lot to the story as well. Even though the book appears to be a disjointed series of tales on its face, it wraps up with a poignant point that you realize was there all along. Helena lives life. She teaches her niece to do likewise. That she never met a situation that she wouldn't try is invigorating. Her self-deprecation is funny. [...]


    3. One of the things I struggle with when reading memoir is trusting the narrator. That may seem strange because the very nature of memoir implies that it is being written from the person who lived the experience, through their honest and perceptive eyes.But let's be honest, we all view our lives in retrospect, and color our stories through the blurred lenses of memory. Whenever I read a memoirs of times long past,--20, 30, 40 years--filled with explicit details of what people wore or ate any given [...]


    4. First of all, this book isn't perfect. But I loved the quirkiness of it anyway, so I'm willing to look past a few things and still give it 5 stars. I say that because 3 days after finishing it, I'm still thinking about it. FIRST THING YOU SHOULD KNOW: This is not a memoir that has a true story arc to it. It's more like a collection of memories. (Duh. Memoir. But NOT memoir.) At first, I was skeptical. Within the first 5% I kept thinking . . . where is this going? But then I just settled in for t [...]


    5. Memoirs of a Dilettante will take you on a crazy ride. Through the dalliances of a precocious woman, through hold your breath moments, through laugh so loud those around you think you're a little crazy - type moments. The pop culture references and accompanying footnotes add a breath of lightness to even the heaviest moments and have you nodding your head in agreement. The story feels like a peek into a glamorous world that is far out of reach for most of us, yet is still conversational and rela [...]


    6. An absolute romp of a tale, skittering delightfully through some of the pasts and presents of the Dilettante's history, 'Memoirs' is simply delightful, jam-packed with writing so exquisite it should really be read on a Parisian balcony whilst quaffing Champagne and eating strawberries. There are a number of further wonders to behold, in the gorgeous subtext of (well, subtextsor footnotes, whichever), which add a certain piquancy to the story, and allow it to come to life. Then there are the mome [...]


    7. This was a delightful memoir. I thoroughly enjoyed the travels, antics and tribulations of Helena and her Niece Penny. The dialogue is witty and fun. Although not everything that happens to Helena is fun and light, she takes you with her and breaks your heart and you see exactly what she is made of. As Helena points out "dilletante comes from the Italian word dilettare (to delight)And I will wear the word dilettante like a badge of honour, as one willing to try, as one will is willing to fail" S [...]


    8. Helena's writing is both captivating and hilarious. The antics of the dilettante and the Countess kept me entertained throughout the book. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys breathing and knows how to read. Anyone else simply won't be able to find joy in it.


    9. When it comes to sarcasm, there is a fine line between rude and witty. That line is even harder to walk when it comes to writing. Helena Hann – Basquiat and her co-conspirator Penny seem to have it down to a fine art. This is what I enjoy most about the writings of this author. She seems to be able to take everyday situations and turn them into enlightened forms of sarcastic humor.Her memoirs have a sense of ‘je ne se qua’. Sophisticated and artistic pop culture commentary. Relatable stori [...]


    10. I don’t know if Helena Hann-Basquiat is a real person or not, or possibly a committee like the one that produced the works of “Shakespeare.” All I know for sure is that she/he/they is a hell of a writer. I chose to read it as fiction, but “Memoirs of a Dilettante - Volume One” is neither a memoir nor a novel, nor a collection of short stories. Maybe it’s a bag of bagatelles, I don’t know. But in a strange way it does seem to recount things that might have really happened to a young [...]


    11. I spent a good part of a vacation reading this book and enjoyed every word of it! Helena tells stories of her California years: rubbing elbows (and sometimes more than elbows) with musicians, crossing paths with sociopaths, having her world turned upside down by men who loved her too much and men who didn’t love her enough. There’s Wyoming and the funny but dramatic series of tangles with an “Accidental Plagiarist” and Cheyenne, his girlfriend “exotic dancer.” Helena even delves into [...]


    12. Do you know Helena? Some people say that she doesn't even exist. But she does - in these pages if nowhere else. And she's worth knowing. Her memoirs are funny, tragic, surprising and haunting in turns. Part of the fascination in reading is wondering where the truth starts or ends and the fiction begins. Here's the opportunity to read a richly designed tapestry that delights and entertains.
