    Review
    ------

    "The essential American story ... a beauty." —Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World

    "Astonishing ... one of the most dazzling and moving memoirs to come along in years." —Michiko Kakutani, The New York
    Times

    "This book is so good I thought about sending it out for a backup opinion...it's like finding Beethoven in Hoboken. To
    have a poet's precision of language and a poet's insight into people applied to one of the roughest, toughest, ugliest
    places in America is an astonishing event." —Molly Ivins, The Nation

    "9mm humor, gothic wit, and a stunning clarity of memory within a poet's vision.... Karr's unerring scrutiny of her
    childhood delivers a story confoundingly real." —The Boston Sunday Globe

    "Overflows with sparkling wit and humor.... Truth beats powerfully at the heart of this dazzling memoir." —San Francisco
    Chronicle
