by Jeannette Walls
A remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption, and a revelatory look into a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. When sober, Jeannette’s brilliant and charismatic father captured his children’s imagination, teaching them physics and geology. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Jeanette’s mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn’t want the responsibility of raising a family. So, the Wall children learned to take care of themselves. The fed, clothed and protected one another, and eventually found their way to New York. Their parents followed them, choosing to be homeless even as their children prospered.
