So today I played hooky from class, because I absently picked up this book...
|The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls|
...And I didn't put it down until about twenty minutes ago. This memoir by Jeannette Walls was the most captivating, heart-breaking, soul-lifting memoir I think I've ever read. I was supposed to be reading about forest management policies. Supposed to be researching cultural markers of Chicano literature for a ten page paper due in less than two weeks. But when a book claws its way into your soul like this, there's just no choice but to race to the end, and then cry when you've run out of pages to turn.
Which is what I did.
