The Liars' Club: A Memoir


Show Synopsis

In this powerfully funny, razor's edge tale of a fractured girlhood, prize-winning poet and critic Mary Karr conjures up the terrors and joys of growing up in a swampy East Texas refinery town, at the epicenter of a family full of passionate, volatie attachments. In a voice stipped of self-pity, in language reinvented with a raw authenticity and brilliant energy, Karr shows readers a "terrific family of liars and drunks . . . redeemed by a slow unearthing of truth".

Wouldn't recommend

I didn't even finish reading this book. Maybe I missed something, but I didn't find it interesting or amusing.

In my opinion this book was a tough read, but completely necessary to follow up with Mary Karr's sequel memoir "Cherry".

Great book - particularly meaningful for those of us who grew up in similar circumstances. In addition to meaningful story - the references to things I grew up with brought back many memories - the Breeze Inn, Cowboy John, shrimp remoulade at Al's Seafood . . . definitely a worthwhile read.
