The Glass Castle  玻璃城堡-Praise for The Glass Castle

The autobiographer is faced with the daunting challenge of…attempting to understand, forgive and even love the witch…. Readers will marvel at the intelligence and resilience of the Walls kids."

—Francine Prose, The New York Times Book Review

"A pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps, thoroughly American story."

—Kirkus Reviews

"Charles Dickens has nothing on Jeannette Walls, author of The Glass Castle,the unflinching story about her grueling, nomadic childhood. Dickens' 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

"An excellent book…. Walls has a fantastic storytelling knack."

—Publishers Weekly

"The Glass Castlewill at times exhaust you, occasionally fill you with fury, and finally leave you in slackjawed wonderment."

—National Review Online

"Jeannette Walls has decided to tell all, and the result is this riveting memoir."

—Glamour

"You'll root for the Walls family."

—Newsweek

"The Glass Castleis the kind of story that keeps you awake long after the rest of the house has fallen asleep."

—Vogue

"Walls writes with clarity and feeling; it's her deep respect that infuses this astonishing story with grace."

—Tampa Tribune

"A beautiful, brave, transformative book."

—Rosie O'Donnell

"Jeannette Walls has carved a story with precision and grace out of one of the most chaotic, heartbreaking childhoods ever to be set down on the page. This deeply affecting memoir is a triumph in every possible way, and it does what all good books should: it affirms our faith in the human spirit."

—Dani Shapiro, author of Family History

"The Glass Castleis the saga of the restless, indomitable Walls family, led by a grand eccentric and his tempestuous artist wife. Jeannette Walls has survived poverty, fires, and near starvation to triumph. She has written this amazing tale with honesty and love."

—Patricia Bosworth, author of Anything Your Little Heart Desiresand Diane Arbus: A Biography

"Just read the first pages of The Glass Castleby Jeannette Walls, and I defy you not to go on. It's funny and sad and quirky and loving. I was incredibly touched by it."

—Dominick Dunne, author of The Way We Lived Then: Recollections of a Well-Known Name Dropper
