Summary:

A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR

New York Times Book Review • The New Yorker • Entertainment Weekly • Time • Washington Post • San Francisco Chronicle • Chicago Tribune • Christian Science Monitor • Slate • St. Louise Post-Dispatch • Cleveland Plain Dealer • Seattle Times • NBCC Award Finalist

Mary Karr’s unforgettable sequel to her beloved and bestselling memoirs The Liars’ Club and Cherry “lassos you, hogties your emotions and won’t let you go” (Michiko Kakutani, New York Times).

Lit is about getting drunk and getting sober; becoming a mother by letting go of a mother; learning to write by learning to live. Written with Karr's relentless honesty, unflinching self-scrutiny, and irreverent, lacerating humor, it is a truly electrifying story of how to grow up—as only Mary Karr can tell it.

The Boston Globe calls Lit a book that “reminds us not only how compelling personal stories can be, but how, in the hands of a master, they can transmute into the highest art.' The New York Times Book Review calls it “a master class on the art of the memoir” and Susan Cheever states, simply, that Lit is “the best book about being a woman in America I have read in years.'

    This is one of the most difficult audio books yet, I've listened. The narrator speaks entirety too fast, not able to comprehend what's being said and, the sound robotic. I allowed the book to play, but I am extremely disappointed in the quality!

  • Stacy Strong

    Love Mary Karr. A wonderful blend of funny and heart wrenching.

  • Anonymous

    I rarely return a book without listening to it. Did not make it through the first disk.

  • Bobbie

    I had heard good things about this book. The content interested me. The author who is also the narrator, drove me crazy ! Very monotone voice, no inflection or emotion. I really couldn't finish it due to the author's poor telling of her own story. Maybe reading it would have been better then listening to it.
