Mary Karr is the type of writer I love; snarky, self-depricating, honest, raw, emotive, simplistic and many more adjectives I won't bore you with. This book is good and worth a listen, but can't compare to "Lit". She definitely improves book by book. Love her work.

Any additional comments?
It kills me that Audible does not have an unabridged version of this book. The cuts are rough, disrupting the storyline, and the sound quality is poor (including some "air" or room static sound). What kills me is that these flaws disrupt Mary Karr's immensely satisfying narration of her absolutely phenomenal and most cherished memoir. I beg Mary Karr to read this entire book again, and Audible for producing/distributing, for listeners today and in decades to come.

Read this. Be drawn into this world, this story. Told without bitterness or rage. Told with surprising tenderness and clarity. A haunting and settling book. I have been gifted its words.
This is a master class in the art of writing.
For me, it was the logical choice after listening to the author's book on how to write a memoir. It is filled with vivid descriptions of the places and people in her life. Mary Karr delivers each character with flowing detail , from appearance to demeanour to the detail of their gait. They walk right off the page and stand beside you.
