    Paperback · Lit PDF À Lit PDFEPUBLike Ron Rash and Thomas Hardy Mary Karr writes dense image rich language with a poet’s flair This is not stuff you speed read past Slow down take a sip from whatever you’re drinking Maybe read that paragraph again Make sure there are no visions left behind The language is a major part of the great value here The other is the content of the story Mary Karr image from her site Lit refers not only to Karr’s affection for the written word but to her level of sobriety Her memoir shows us a life lived under the burden of

    Paperback · Lit PDF À Lit PDFEPUBOn its funniest and its most harrowing pages Mary Karr's Lit reminds me of Augusten Burroughs's Dry both sarcastic heartbroken protagonists are helplessly addicted to alcohol romantically incapacitated and surrounded by saccharine morons In moron land Karr escapes mental institution bureaucracy in time to attend a literary reception in her honor by using guile The institute's Nurse Ratchett has a tendency to bring up penis envy every session and I swear that this time when she does I'll confess to my intense longing for a dick of my own for in most places that pretend to value honesty I've usually found that sucking up is an underrated virtue given how well it works Both Karr and Burroughs start going to AA meetings with anthropological distance They resist and mock the moist

    Paperback · Lit PDF À Lit PDFEPUBKarr's hard edged poetic voice made The Liars' Club one of my favorite books In Lit the voice is just as searing and lovely but perhaps not as consistent The childhood digressions nods to her previous works were the weakest portions of the n

    Paperback · Lit PDF À Lit PDFEPUBit's entirely impossible to give this book less than five stars because it's an obvious masterpiece of narrative heart and language unlike other memoirists who put it all out there though mary karr doesn't scrape the bottom of the barrel and come up with the miserable putrescent dregs that caused her to be so miserable and also to drink two different predicaments though i suppose the latter cannot happen without the former she talks many times pretty much from beginning to end about being a sort of lifetime therapy goer but what she and her therapists talk about she doesn't tell us

    Paperback · Lit PDF À Lit PDFEPUBA big messy book with a lot of good things and a lot of annoying things Karr overwrites with a vengeance throwing 2 metaphors into one sentence when none would have been a lot better There's a this is me warts and all stream of consciousness thing that she does that is apparently engaging for a lot of readers but I tended to find her on the narcissistic side Somewhere in this 400 page monster is a great 200 page memoir dying to shed some poundageWhat I did like about the book was her honesty about her struggle to deal with God as a necessary entity in her recovery and that her struggle had a positive outcome After all the legalistic and sour atheism at the top of best seller lists it was nice to read about someone

    Paperback · Lit PDF À Lit PDFEPUBWarning craft review Karr employs or deploys a number of craft strategies and techniques that I examined in order to rip off for my own writing I whittled down the many to these few• Prologues as context anchoring and or launching? points for both writer and reader and how the prologues determine the economy of explanation throughout the book• Management of present and past self narrators for story for suspense and other effects• Cognitive entry points the deft turns of phrase Karr uses to access—or to seem to access and thereby weave in—memory• Use of parenthetical statements as a device for interrogating her own memory calling bull shit on herself andor adding another layer of subjectivity With the prologues we encounter an open letter to Karr’s son which answers the vital narrator questions outlined by writer David Mura in a presentation I attended at the Stonecoast Residency Who? To Whom? When? Why? The reader is immediately
