Mary Karr's voice makes the story come alive
As one who grew up in the same era as Mary Karr (albeit not in East Texas), I loved this book and Ms. Karr's ability to resurrect memories of that time that I'd long forgotten. She also gets beneath the surface of what her characters are saying to reveal what they really mean. Unlike another reviewer, I found Ms. Karr's reading to be a benefit, not a detraction. Highly recommended.
