    Lit follows Mary Karr's descent into the inferno of alcoholism and madness - and her astonishing resurrection. Karr's longing for a solid family seems secure when her marriage to a handsome, Shakespeare-quoting poet produces a son they adore. But she can't outrun her apocalyptic past. She drinks herself into the same numbness that nearly devoured her charismatic but troubled mother, reaching the brink of suicide. A hair-raising stint in "The Mental Marriott" awakens her to the possibility of joy, and leads her to an unlikely faith.

    glamazon says: "Compelling."
    "Honest, raw, funny, sad"
    Overall

    Mary Karr is as wonderful a narrator as she is a writer. I haven't read the first two installments of her memoirs (though I will now) but it didn't matter in terms of "getting" her, her life, her past, etc. This is an honest, raw, fairly gritty memoir. Karr has a great sense of humor and unflinching honesty as a writer and memoirist. I was enthralled.
