Recovery. Mary Karr’s new memoir, Lit, continues to tell in finely crafted language the story of her dysfunctional life. I found myself rapidly turning these pages as she falls under the spell of alcoholism and eventually marches down the road to recovery. Hers is a lively story, packed with a bounty of issues and relationships, past and present. Smart, troubled artists can captivate our attention. In Lit, Karr does that in a masterly way, and I found that in some ways as she began recovery, I felt a restoration of my own.
Rating: Four-star (Highly Recommended)
