Note de l'éditeur

A triumphant exposé…
With millions of copies sold and a film adaptation starring Brie Larson, reporter Walls’ memoir is a triumphant exposé on the one subject she knows best: her dysfunctional family.

Description

An engaging, emotionally charged tale of love that knows no bounds in a family that, despite its overbearing problems, gave the author the unwavering determination to carve out a life of success on her own terms.

The Glass Castle follows the story of Jeannette Walls' life growing up with her ideologically nonconforming parents. Rex, her father, and Rose Mary, her mother, were both creative types. When sober, Rex was a charismatic father who taught his children about physics, geology, and how to embrace life. Rose Mary focused on her paintings and didn't mind living life as a nomad.

Eventually, as the story often goes, the money ran out, and the romance of living a wandering life faded. The family's dysfunction eventually reached a boiling point, and the children gathered their resources and left home.

This enthralling tale of the author's childhood, and her life since, is a riveting tale. She holds nothing back, and her emotions run thick, pulling at heartstrings and enticing the reader to turn page after page.
