Listening to Mary Karr read Lit, her latest memoir, might well be one of the best book-listening experiences of 2010. As usual, I’ve already read the book — the minute it came out — and raced through it, sad to see it come to an end. The Texas-swagger in her voice paired with the poetry of the prose just about knocks me right over. And in typical Mary Karr fashion, the story is crazy-compelling. As Mary would say, ” I shit you not.”
If you’re looking for an audio book, download Lit from iTunes and listen. I double-dog dare you. You can thank me later.
