Book Reviews: Chanel Bonfire:A Memoir And The Glass Castle
After reading "The Death Of Bees" I read "Chanel Bonfire:A Memoir" by Wendy Lawless. Kidnapped by a narcissistic and psychotic mother, two girls grapple to bring themselves up in her crazy reality.Charming as well as unpredictable, Lawless' mother makes Joan Crawford look like a rookie. In some ways the book reminded me of Jannette Walls "The Glass Castle", and it was encouraging to watch these girls grow up to overcome the abuse and neglect into successful adults. I recommend all three books.
