Lit: A Memoir, by Mary Karr

pin 4

Lit by Mary Karr. Also in my top three for 2010. I loved her other memoirs, they were so funny and dark, so I was nervous for this one. But it was excellent and, really, a spiritual autobiography. Who saw that coming? @Mary Karr #Lit

"Literature is Eucharistic. You take somebody else's suffering into your body and you’re changed by it, you’re made larger by their pain. You come to understand pain in a way that maybe otherwise you wouldn't." -- Mary Karr
