A powerfully funny, razor's-edge tale of a fractured childhood, Mary Karr's biography looks back through a child's eyes to sort through dark household secrets. She witnesses an inheritance squandered, endless bottles emptied, and guns leveled at both the deserving and the undeserving. In a voice stripped of self-pity and charged with brilliant energy, she introduces us to a family ravaged by lies and alcoholism, yet redeemed by the revelation of truth. Karr, a prize-winning poet, uses her linguistic skills and sharp personal insights to make The Liar's Club an utterly mesmerizing memoir. Download and start listening now!

    " The book was okay- to me it was just another book of this is my life. Today, I went to school, came home and my mom was crazy. I guess we all have something to deal with in our lives and then we choose to write about it or not. "

    " I'm reading this for the second time. That's why I can already give it a five-start review! I'm in wonder of her excellent writing skills. And the characters are fascinating. I love how if she doesn't remember something she says so. Now, I'm suspect of all childhood memoirs--I don't see how people can remember enough details to write a really good story of their early childhood. I know I couldn't. But I no longer see it as terrible to make up the little details like what color shirt Uncle Riley was wearing or what brand chew tobacco he used--though I would deem it dishonest if authors made up events. "

    " If you like being in the mind of a person who has ADD for 320 pages then read this. The story is not cohesive and it is quite difficult to read. I don't know where the "howling laughter" from the critics review on the back of the book was. However, I do know that I will not read another book written by this author in this style. If it wouldn't have been for book club, I would have put it down after 20-50 pages. "

    " I liked this the least of her three memoirs, but it was still an enjoyable read. "
