Good. Unabridged audiobook on 8 cassettes, approximaely 11.25 hours. Narrated by Julia Gibson. A retired library copy, with typical markings; case and cassettes in good condition. An extraordinary and courageously honest memoir of life and love in a highly dysfunctional family, Walls tells an unforgettable story. A Publishers WeeklyStarred Review: "Freelance writer Walls doesn't pull her punches. She opens her memoir by describing looking out the window of her taxi...and spotting her mother on the sidewalk, "rooting through a Dumpster." Walls's parents-just two of the unforgettable characters in this excellent, unusual book-were a matched pair of eccentrics, and raising four children didn't conventionalize either of them....The Walls children learned to support themselves, eating out of trashcans at school or painting their skin so the holes in their pants didn't show." A Kirkus Starred Review: "Walls's journalistic bare-bones style makes for a chilling, wrenching, incredible testimony of childhood neglect. A pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps, thoroughly American story."
