Overview
The dazzling, prizewinning, wickedly funny tale of Mary Karr s hardscrabble Texas childhood the book that sparked a renaissance in memoir
When it was published in 1995, Mary Karr s The Liars Club took the world by storm and raised the art of the memoir to an entirely new level, as well as 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 twelve, and an oft-married mother whose accumulated secrets threaten to destroy them all. Now with a new introduction that discusses her memoir s impact on her family, 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."
