Mary Karr’s third memoir, Lit, tells her tale of 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 coming-of-age story. Karr, the self-professed blackbelt sinner, painstakingly reveals her descent into the inferno of alcoholism and madness-and her astonishing resurrection.

” Lit] 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.”-Rebecca Steinitz, Boston Globe
