dit aangrijpende levensverhaal beschrijft Jeannette Walls haar jeugd als oudste van de vier kinderen in een gezin dat zonder vaste woonplaats en in bittere armoede leeft Hoe ze als driejarige knakworstjes stond op te warmen en zich vreselijk verbrandde hoe haar vader telkens weer ontslagen werd Hoe haar moeder het land dat ze erfde niet wilde verkopen ook al zou dat een einde maken aan de financi le zorgen Hoe ze liever in kartonnen dozen sliepen dan in bedden omdat het zo gezellig was Hoeveel zij hield van haar volstrekt onverantwoordelijke ouders en hoe ze haar keer op keer

and above all how to embrace life fearlessly Rose Mary who painted and wrote and couldn t stand the responsibility of providing for her family called herself an excitement addict Cooking a meal that would be consumed in fifteen minutes had no appeal when she could make a painting that might last forever br br Later when the money ran out or the romance of the wandering life faded the Walls retreated to the dismal West Virginia mining town and the family Rex Walls had done everything he could to escape He drank He stole the grocery money and disappeared for days As the dysfunction of the
