Críticas:

"The essential American story . . . a beauty." --Jonathan Yardley, "The Washington Post Book World"
"Astonishing . . . one of the most dazzling and moving memoirs to come along in years." --Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times"
"This book is so good I thought about sending it out for a backup opinion. . . . It's like finding Beethoven in Hoboken. To have a poet's precision of language and a poet's insight into people applied to one of the roughest, toughest, ugliest places in America is an astonishing event." --Molly Ivins, "The Nation"
"9mm humor, gothic wit, and a stunning clarity of memory within a poet's vision . . . Karr's unerring scrutiny of her childhood delivers a story confoundingly real." --"The Boston Sunday Globe"
"Overflows with sparkling wit and humor . . . Truth beats powerfully at the heart of this dazzling memoir." --"San Francisco Chronicle"
"Mary Karr's God-awful childhood has a calamitous appeal. The choice in the book is between howling misery and howling laughter, and the reader veers toward laughter. Karr has survived to write a drop-dead reply to the question, 'Ma, what was it like when you were a little girl?' " --"Time"
"This is the real deal; funny, painful, and hotter than Texas in September. This is what the memoir is supposed to be." --Stephen King, "Entertainment Weekly"
"Elegaic and searching . . . her toughness of spirit, her poetry, her language, her very voice are the agents of rebirth in this difficult, hard-earned journey." --"The New York Times Book Review"

For a certain group of twenty-something women, consumption of, and passion for, The Liars Club is both a rite of passage and a mode of self-identification. . . . I am lucky I was eight when this book was published. I am lucky I grew up in a world where it colored people s reactions to personal stories, female stories. We all are. Because The Liars Club is more than an account of a tattered childhood and one brave and brilliant woman s attempt to use it rather than deny it. It is an aggressive tap on the shoulder in a crowded room, a smiling funny face asking its readers: Wanna be friends? Lena Dunham, from the Foreword
The essential American story . . . A great pleasure to read. The Washington Post Book World
Astonishing . . . one of the most dazzling and moving memoirs to come along in years . . . [Karr s] most powerful tool is her language, which she wields with the virtuosity of both a lyric poet and an earthy, down-home Texan. It s a wonderfully unsentimental vision. The New York Times

Karr lovingly retells [her parents ] best lies and drunken extravagances with an ear for bar-stool phraseology and a winking eye for image. The revelations continue to the final page, with a misleading carelessness as seductive as any world-class liar s. The New Yorker
Karr has drawn black gold from the [Texan] mud. Texas Monthly
Karr s God-awful childhood has a calamitous appeal. The choice in the book is between howling misery and howling laughter, and the reader veers toward laughter. Karr has survived to write a drop-dead reply to the question, Ma, what was it like when you were a little girl? Time
Mary Karr is a phoenix. That she arose from any fire to create poetry says as much about poetry as it does about Mary Karr. Mary-Louise Parker on her favorite memoir, The Liars Club, in Ladies Home Journal

Reseña del editor:

For its twentieth anniversary, a stunning Graphic Deluxe Edition of Mary Karr's pathbreaking, award-winning, mega-bestselling memoir, with a new foreword by Lena Dunham
One of the 12 Best Book Covers of 2015, as chosen by the art director of The New York Times Book Review
When it was first published twenty years ago, The Liars' Club took the world by storm and raised the art of the memoir to an entirely new level, bringing about a dramatic revival of the form. Karr's comic childhood in an east Texas oil town brings us characters as darkly hilarious as any of J. D. Salinger's--a hard-drinking daddy, a sister who can talk down the sheriff at age twelve, and an oft-married mother whose accumulated secrets threaten to destroy them all. Now in a stunning Penguin Classics Graphic Deluxe Edition with a new foreword by Lena Dunham--a creative game changer in her own right--this unsentimental and profoundly moving account of an apocalyptic childhood is as "funny, lively, and un-put-downable" (USA Today) today as it ever was.
For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.
