USF Book Club: The Glass Castle

“I WAS SITTING IN a taxi, wondering if I had overdressed for the evening, when I looked out the window and saw Mom rooting through a Dumpster,” begins The Glass Castle. Jeanette Walls’ memoir recounts her bizarre (and traumatic) upbringing by her brilliant alcoholic dad and her free spirit artsy mom, but never verges on sentimental.
