Mary Karr, Lena Dunham, Brian Rea

#4 on The New York Times' list of The 50 Best Memoirs of the Past 50 Years The New York Times bestselling, hilarious tale of a hardscrabble Texas childhood that Oprah.com calls the best memoir of a generation-now with a foreword by Lena Dunham in celebration of its twentieth anniversary Wickedly funny and always movingly illuminating, thanks to kick-ass storytelling and a poet’s ear. -Oprah.com The Liars' Clubtook the world by storm and raised the art of the memoir to an entirely new level, bringing about a dramatic revival of the form.

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.
