Episode Details

Original tape date: February 10, 2010.

Sheryl welcomes best-selling author Mary Karr to the show in this episode. Her memoir, “The Liars' Club,” published in 1995, was a “New York Times” bestseller for over a year. It delves vividly and often humorously into her deeply troubled childhood, most of which was spent in a gritty, industrial section of Southeast Texas in the 1960s. She followed the book with another memoir, “Cherry” (2000), about her late adolescence and early womanhood. A third memoir, “Lit: A Memoir,” which she says details "my journey from blackbelt sinner and lifelong agnostic to unlikely Catholic," came out in November 2009.
