Some brief overview of this book

It is 1970 in a small town in California. Bean Holladay is twelve and her sister, Liz, is fifteen when their artistic mother, Charlotte, takes off to find herself, leaving her girls enough money to last a month or two. When Bean returns from school one day and sees a police car outside the house, she and Liz decide to take the bus to Virginia, where their widowed Uncle Tinsley lives in the decaying mansion thats been in Charlottes family for generations. An impetuous optimist, Bean soon discovers who her father was, and hears stories about why their mother left Virginia in the first place. Money is tight, and the sisters start babysitting and doing office work for Jerry Maddox, foreman of the mill in town, who bullies his workers, his tenants, his children, and his wife. Liz is whip-smart-an inventor of word games, reader of Edgar Allan Poe, nonconformist. But when school starts in the fall, its Bean who easily adjusts, and Liz who becomes increasingly withdrawn. And then something happens to Liz in the car with Maddox. Jeannette Walls has written a deeply moving novel about triumph over adversity and about people who find a way to love each other and the world, despite its flaws and injustices.

A few words about book's author

Jeannette Walls

For two decades, MSNBC.com contributor Jeannette Walls hid her hardscrabble past as the child of two rebellious noncomformists (who sometimes put painting before parenting). With her riveting memoir, The Glass Castle, Walls breaks her silence to reveal a triumphant story of strength, success, and unconditional love.

Good To Know

Some interesting outtakes from our interview with Walls: When I sat down to write The Glass Castle, there was no doubt in my mind that once the truth about me was out I would lose all my friends and my job. So far, the reaction has been the opposite. Im just stunned. I think Ive shortchanged people and their capacity for compassion. The whole experience has changed my outlook on the world. My brother and I are closer. My sister Lori and I have discussed things wed never before talked about. Im back in touch with people I knew in West Virginia whom I hadnt spoken to since I left. My mother wants to correct something in the book: She wants everyone to know that shes an excellent driver. When I was growing up, I always loved animals. But it was a part of myself that Id let go dormant as an adult. Writing The Glass Castle, I was reminded of how important animals had always been to me, and that love was reawakened. Not long ago, I rescued two racing greyhounds, Emma and Leopold, and Im irrationally devoted to them.
