Lit: A Memoir by Mary Karr
Lit: A Memoir

iowacat, June 23, 2010

I was on a waiting list for months to get this from the library. Now that I've read it, I realize I have to own it. (At some point, maybe I'll be able to read the chapter about putting her dad in the nursing home without crying.) Patently Mary Karr, filled with her razor wit and scathing insights, it skillfully, humorously, achingly, weaves together daughter, wife, mother. A story of regret and redemption, Lit is both gut wrenching and uplifting.
