Jul 28, 2011

Raised by alcoholic, poor, fairly dysfunctional parents, Mary Karr became a substance abuser herself as a young mother. But she had an incredible gift in her writing ability. And in spite of herself, she experienced a slow, but true, conversion to a belief in God... and to a belief in her writing ability. Her descriptions of life as an alcoholic are amazing - as are her stories of being changed. To top it off, she's very funny! I would highly recommend it if you can take a little language.
