In a voice stipped of self-pity, in language reinvented with a raw authenticity and brilliant energy, Karr shows readers a "terrific family of liars and drunks . . . redeemed by a slow unearthing of truth".Hide synopsis

Great book - particularly meaningful for those of us who grew up in similar circumstances. In addition to meaningful story - the references to things I grew up with brought back many memories - the Breeze Inn, Cowboy John, shrimp remoulade at Al's Seafood . . . definitely a worthwhile read.
