Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

In a new hardcover edition of the best-selling, award-winning memoir, the 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 Appalachia--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
