Mary Karr’s brave memoir is about alcoholism, getting sober, and getting God. She revisits her past with rare candor and humor, recounting her role in the disintegration of her marriage to Warren Whitbread, the reserved scion of a fabulously wealthy family (whose other members are deliciously skewered here), as well as her most shameful moments (leaving her feverish toddler to take a long swig from the bottle of Jack Daniels stashed in the oven). When Karr undergoes a hard-won spiritual awakening through the combined efforts of AA, her spiritual director, Joan the Bone, and a stay in the Mental Marriott, readers will be cheering.~Adapted from Publisher’s Weekly review
