“In a gravelly, ground-glass-under-your-heel voice that can take you from laughter to awe in a few sentences, Karr has written the best book about being a woman in America I have read in years.” (Susan Cheever, New York Times Book Review)

Lit is about 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 story of how to grow up--as only Mary Karr can tell it.

"Dazzling... 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" (Boston Globe)
