Lies My Mother Never Told Me
A MemoirBook - 2009
In her riveting memoir Lies My Mother Never Told Me, Kaylie Jones--the daughter of author James Jones ( From Here to Eternity ) and an acclaimed author in her own right ( A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries; Celeste Ascending; As Soon As It Rains )--tells the poignant story of her relationship with her famous father and her alcoholic mother, and of her own struggles with the disease. A true story of privilege, loss, self-discovery, and redemption, Lies My Mother Never Told Me is Jones's unforgettable account of a not-quite-fairy-tale childhood and adulthood defined by two constants: literature and alcohol.
