Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The second child of a scholarly, alcoholic father and an eccentric artist mother discusses her family's nomadic upbringing from the Arizona desert, to Las Vegas, to an Appalachian mining town, during which her siblings and she fended for themselves while their parents outmaneuvered bill collectors and the authorities.


Review:

"An account of growing up nomadic, starry-eyed, and dirt poor in the '60s and '70s....A pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps, thoroughly American story."

Kirkus, 12/15/2004

Review:

"What saves this book from mind-numbing grimness is the family's extraordinary resilience. You'll root for them."

Barbara Kantrowitz, Newsweek, 03/07/2005
