Congratulations to Mary Karr. Her book Lit: A Memoir, was named one of the ten best books of 2009 by the New York Times Book Review ("This sequel to The Liars’ Club and Cherry is also a master class on the art of the memoir. Mordantly funny, free of both self-pity and sentimentality, Karr describes her attempts to untether herself from her troubled family in rural Texas, her development as a poet and writer, and her struggles to navigate marriage and young motherhood even as she descends into alcoholism.”).
If you are interested in adopting Lit: A Memoir for a class, you may order an exam copy. If you have already ordered the book for a class, please order a complimentary desk copy.
