Why did I love this book?
This was the first memoir I read by a badass woman. It’s older but so worth going back to. Mary Karr’s command of the English language and her poetic sensibilities make reading about her tense childhood lyrical and dazzling. Her wit and gritty voice sing as she paints the devastating picture of her journey through childhood in a fractured, tormented family.
I loved this book because it gave me permission to be just as bold in telling my story. She so bravely put herself out there and passed the bravery baton to me and everyone who reads her stunning story.
