"Wickedly funny and always movingly illuminating, thanks to kick-ass storytelling and a poet's ear." -Oprah.com The New York Times bestselling, hilarious tale of Mary Karr's hardscrabble Texas childhood that Oprah.com calls the best memoir of a generation. The Liars' Club took the world by storm and raised the art of the memoir to an entirely new level, bringing about a dramatic revival of the form. Karr's comic childhood in an east Texas oil town brings us characters as darkly hilarious as any of J. D. Salinger's--a hard-drinking daddy, a sister who can talk down the sheriff at age twelve, and an oft-married mother whose accumulated secrets threaten to destroy them all. This unsentimental and profoundly moving account of an apocalyptic childhood is as "funny, lively, and un-put-downable" (USA Today) today as it ever was.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Mary KarrPublisher: Penguin BooksPublished: 05/31/2005ISBN: 9780143035749Pages: 352Weight: 0.51lbsSize: 7.70h x 5.08w x 0.64dReview Citations: Ingram Advance 06/01/2005 pg. 57Entertainment Weekly 11/06/2009 pg. 61
