This extraordinary memoir from Jeannette Walls is a stirring and distinctive story that has won tremendous critical acclaim. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly applauds the author's "fantastic storytelling knack", saying, "Walls doesn't pull her punches...in this excellent, unusual book."

The author's father was a charismatic but alcoholic man who greatly preferred poker to gainful employment and wasn't above stealing the family grocery money to purchase liquor. His wife could barely be bothered to raise her children. So Walls and her siblings had to fend for themselves, providing their own food, shelter, and clothing, even if it meant picking through dumpsters.

Remarkable for its lack of both sentimentality and anger, The Glass Castle is a striking testament to the power of human determination. It will long resonate in the minds of all who read it.
