Review Quotes"The Glass Castle is nothing short of spectacular."-- "Entertainment Weekly" "The Glass Castle is the kind of story that keeps you awake long after the rest of the house has fallen asleep."-- "Vogue" "Charles Dickens's scenes of poverty and hardship are no more audacious and no more provocative than those in the pages of this stunning memoir."-- "The Atlanta Journal-Constitution" "Each memory is more incredible than the last... That Walls recounts them so well and in such detail is our good fortune."-- "The Plain Dealer" "Extraordinary."-- "Time" "On the eighth day, when God was handing out whining privileges, he came upon Jeannette Walls and said, 'For you, an unlimited lifetime supply.' Apparently, Walls declined His kind offer."-- "Chicago Tribune" "Some people are born storytellers. Some lives are worth telling. The best memoirs happen when these two conditions converge. In The Glass Castle, they have."-- "New York Newsday" "Walls has a God-given knack for spinning a yarn, and The Glass Castle is nothing short of spectacular."-- "Entertainment Weekly" "Walls has joined the company of writers such as Mary Karr and Frank McCourt who have been able to transform their sad memories into fine art."-- "People"
