The Liars' Club

The Liars' Club - Mary Karr Perhaps if I had read this when it first came out or perhaps if I had read it before such classic memoirs as The Glass Castle, Falling Leaves, Angela's Ashes, and Blackbird then maybe, maybe I would have liked Liar's Club better. But there were many parts of the book where I found myself asking, "So what?"
There were some moments of intriguing writing and some horrifying things did happen to her- which is not to say that a memoir has to be all about horrifying events, just that the overall story needs to be well told and I just didn't feel that all the parts of this story were well told and it got tedious at times.
Actually, the reader discovers that the mother had an incredibly heartbreaking story herself and perhaps she should have written a memoir.
