Summary
Jeannette Walls' parents Rex and Rose Mary Walls lived like nomads, moving among Southwest desert towns with their four children. When sober, Rex was charismatic and brilliant; Rose Mary was an "excitement addict" who devoted herself to her painting at the expense of her family. When their money ran out or the romance of wandering faded, the Walls family settled in Welch, West Virginia, a dismal mining town; as the family became increasingly disfunctional Jeannette and her siblings had to fend for themselves and finally leave home. After 20 years of silence about her childhood, author Jeannette Walls looks back and describes her parents with generosity and love
