Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A chronicle of ordinary life that is partly a scrapbook, partly a memoir and, most movingly, an essay on the passage of time and the mysterious connections between parents and children.
Fresh: Block wears his neuroses so guilelessly on his sleeve and organizes his material with such skill, that what might have been insufferable navel-gazing attains poignancy.
Fresh: The same qualities that sometimes make The Kids Grow Up tough to watch also make it irresistible.
Rotten: Maybe being able to look back in time is comforting for Block and company, but what makes him think complete strangers give a damn about his not-especially-interesting family?
