About this title:

Synopsis: A trenchant memoir of a troubled American childhood from the child's point of view describes growing up in a an East Texas refinery town, life in the midst of a turbulent family of drunks and liars, a schoolyard rape, and other dark secrets. 25,000 first printing.

Review: In this funny, razor-edged memoir, Mary Karr, a prize-winning poet and critic, looks back at her upbringing in a swampy East Texas refinery town with a volatile, defiantly loving family. She recalls her painter mother, seven times married, whose outlaw spirit could tip into psychosis; a fist-swinging father who spun tales with his cronies--dubbed the Liars' Club; and a neighborhood rape when she was eight. An inheritance was squandered, endless bottles emptied, and guns leveled at the deserving and undeserving. With a raw authenticity stripped of self-pity and a poet's eye for the lyrical detail, Karr shows us a "terrific family of liars and drunks ... redeemed by a slow unearthing of truth."

Book Description Viking/Penguin Group, New York, NY, 1995. Hardback. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. 1st edition. The Liars' Club A Memoir by Mary Karr. Published by Viking/Penguin Group, New York, NY, 1995. 1st Edition 5th Printing. Hardbound, Paper DJ. Size 8vo (up to 9-1/2'' tall). Condition: V-Fine in Good- DJ. 320 Pgs. ISBN 0670850535. LCCN 94-41252. The author writes of her family and her younger self in the Texas refinery town of Leechfield. Her father, champion spinner of improbable tales told at the local American Legion Bar to other members of the Liar's Club. She tells of her mother's unimaginable past that threatens the family's very sanity; of her mad, puritanical grandmother; of a vast inheritance squandered in one year flat; of endless emptied bottles; and the darkness inflicted on an eight-year-old girl. Her voice explodes with antic wit, stripped of self-pity. Miraculously, it makes a journey into joy. Here is a terrific family of liars redeemed by a slow unearthing of truth.
