The international bestseller from a prize-winning poet and critic
'Astonishing ...One of the most dazzling and moving memoirs to come along in years' - "New York Times". Mary Karr grew up in a swampy East Texas refinery town in a volatile and defiantly loving family. In this devastating, haunting memoir, she looks back at life with a painter mother, seven times married, whose outlaw spirit could tip over into psychosis, and a heavy-drinking, fist-swinging father who liked nothing better than to spin tales with his cronies at the Liars' Club. Telling her story with a raw and often painful honesty, and an authenticity entirely stripped of self-pity, the harshness of the world Karr paints is redeemed by her warmth, intelligent humour and finelyspun prose; "The Liars' Club" is both heart-stopping and heartfelt. 'An unsparing portrait of a fractured childhood' - "Vogue". 'A bruising, beautiful book' - Christopher Hope.See all Product description
