I read both The Liars Club and Cherry in college and was moved beyond words. Certain aspects of Mary Karr's life mirror my own; and Lit was no exception. I found this book to be a love letter/explanation to her son, and the raw levels of honesty and emotion were moving. The element of the book that suprised me the most was Mary's deep spirituality that she was dragged into kicking and screaming after coming to terms with her addiction problems. It was very relatable and made me want to read her first two books all over again.
