Review

Rating: 10

In this gorgeous, disturbing memoir, gossip columnist Jeannette Walls describes growing up as the child of creative, eccentric, neglectful, delusional parents. There’s an almost lyrical quality to Walls’ dispassionate telling of what some will view as an impossibly difficult upbringing, drawing the reader into the story the way a poor-me sob story would not. An excellent read.
