I also found this to be beautifully written, and also compelling. Read very quickly. I now have a plan to read more Donald Antrim.

This beautifully written, poignant and painful book haunts the reader. No wonder Donald Antrim was awarded a MacArthur genius grant in 2013!

Until I read most of Antrim's sour memoir of his hapless mother, I thought only women bitched about lousy parents.

She was sure awful but who cares?
