PEN/Martha Albrand Award – winner


“The essential American story … a beauty.” —Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World

“Astonishing … one of the most dazzling and moving memoirs to come along in years.” —Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

“This book is so good I thought about sending it out for a backup opinion…it’s like finding Beethoven in Hoboken. To have a poet’s precision of language and a poet’s insight into people applied to one of the roughest, toughest, ugliest places in America is an astonishing event.” —Molly Ivins, The Nation

“9mm humor, gothic wit, and a stunning clarity of memory within a poet’s vision…. Karr’s unerring scrutiny of her childhood delivers a story confoundingly real.” —The Boston Sunday Globe

“Overflows with sparkling wit and humor…. Truth beats powerfully at the heart of this dazzling memoir.” —San Francisco Chronicle
