The Story of Peggy Karr Glass





Karr Glass

Memoirs about a dysfuntional family?

What are some memoirs that show a wildly original and wildly dysfunctional family with humor and compassion?
It can compare to The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
Another example of a book like that is Liars' Club by Mary Karr

Thanks so much!(:

Angela's Ashes? I'm trying to recall the author. Frank...

Frank McCourt. He wrote another one about his experience as a teacher in Manhattan. His brother also wrote. The title "T'is" comes to mind.

This will get you started.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angela%E2%80%99s_Ashes

http://www.rambles.net/mccourt_tis.html

The thing about writing about a painful childhood is that if you do it right, everybody laughs at it.
