Read in March, 2009

Another "poor me" childhood memoir. While I sympathize and am aghast at much of what happened to Mary Karr during this book, I just didn't feel the pull of emotion or empathy you would expect to come from a book like this.

Jeanette Walls' the Glass Castle - a similar story of a young girl's growing up in rural Appalachia was better written and more engaging than this book
