This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
In her riveting memoir Lies My Mother Never Told Me, Kaylie Jones—the daughter of author James Jones (From Here to Eternity) and an acclaimed author in her own right (A Soldier’s Daughter Never Cries; Celeste Ascending; As Soon As It Rains)—tells the poignant story of her relationship with her famous father and her alcoholic mother, and of her own struggles with the disease. A true story of privilege, loss, self-discovery, and redemption, Lies My Mother Never Told Me is Jones’s unforgettable account of a not-quite-fairy-tale childhood and adulthood defined by two constants: literature and alcohol.

Loved this book!
So interesting to read the stories about her father and the other great writers that they both knew. And her alcoholism and that of her parents is shown in a clear, horrible way that is true of all alcoholics, no matter how different our stories may be. Excellent book, next to impossible to put down.
