The Liars' Club

A Memoir

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

“Wickedly funny and always movingly illuminating, thanks to kick-ass storytelling and a poet's ear.” –Oprah.com
 
The New York Times bestselling, hilarious tale of Mary Karr’s hardscrabble Texas childhood that Oprah.com calls the best memoir of a generation.

The Liars’ Club took the world by storm and raised the art of the memoir to an entirely new level, bringing about a dramatic revival of the form. Karr’s comic childhood in an east Texas oil town brings us characters as darkly hilarious as any of J. D. Salinger’s—a hard-drinking daddy, a sister who can talk down the sheriff at age twelve, and an oft-married mother whose accumulated secrets threaten to destroy them all. This unsentimental and profoundly moving account of an apocalyptic childhood is as “funny, lively, and un-put-downable” (USA Today) today as it ever was.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 29, 1996 – Poet Karr's NBCC nominated memoir of her East Texas childhood is a blackly comic tale of a family prone to alcoholism, violence and insanity.

Customer Reviews

Her words explode into images from within your soul.

This book touched me in so many ways. Her writing is clear, brutal and achingly funny at times. Her childhood memories are more alive than today’s news. I found myself reading this aloud just to enjoy the twang of her accent. This is the best book I have read in years.
