's review
Apr 21, 2012

it was ok

I really enjoyed The Liar's Club and wanted to like this more, but found it too self-absorbed and ultimately too obsessive (in a frustrating way; I have nothing against obsessiveness in an authorial voice per se) to have much real emotional resonance. I also ended up sort of disliking Mary Carr as a person, which isn't always a problem--I felt that way slightly with Somewhere Towards the End--but is generally distracting in a memoir.
