9780743247542: The Glass Castle: A Memoir

MORE THAN SEVEN YEARS ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST

The perennially bestselling, extraordinary, one-of-a-kind, “nothing short of spectacular” ( Entertainment Weekly) memoir from one of the world’s most gifted storytellers—soon to be a major motion picture starring Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts.

The Glass Castle is a remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption, and a revelatory look into a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. When sober, Jeannette’s brilliant and charismatic father captured his children’s imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Her mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn’t want the responsibility of raising a family.

The Walls children learned to take care of themselves. They fed, clothed, and protected one another, and eventually found their way to New York. Their parents followed them, choosing to be homeless even as their children prospered.

The Glass Castle is truly astonishing—a memoir permeated by the intense love of a peculiar but loyal family.

Recensione:

"Walls has joined the company of writers such as Mary Karr and Frank McCourt who have been able to transform their sad memories into fine art." ( People)

"Walls has a God-given knack for spinning a yarn, and  The Glass Castle is nothing short of spectacular." ( Entertainment Weekly)

"Extraordinary." ( Time)

"Each memory is more incredible than the last... That Walls recounts them so well and in such detail is our good fortune." ( The Plain Dealer)

"On the eighth day, when God was handing out whining privileges, he came upon Jeannette Walls and said, 'For you, an unlimited lifetime supply.' Apparently, Walls declined His kind offer." ( Chicago Tribune)

"Charles Dickens's scenes of poverty and hardship are no more audacious and no more provocative than those in the pages of this stunning memoir." ( The Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

"Some people are born storytellers. Some lives are worth telling. The best memoirs happen when these two conditions converge. In  The Glass Castle, they have." ( New York Newsday)

" The Glass Castle is the kind of story that keeps you awake long after the rest of the house has fallen asleep." ( Vogue)

" The Glass Castle is nothing short of spectacular." ( Entertainment Weekly)
