Who is Mary Karr A memoirist this is her third She is now 57 years old She is a professor of literature at Syracuse University She is a published poet She is a single mother She is famous given credit for the huge increase in the popularity of the memoir as reader fodder and conseuently rich presumably a 1%er She is a free willing Catholic and a practicing alcoholic in recovery In other words Believes strongly in the power of God prayers and sober and attends AA meetings She is white petite attractive intelligent and educated But I still don t know who she is Which to me is the take away from Lit After reading Lit I think I have a better understanding of who Mitt Romney is than I do Mary Karr and Romney a current candidate for US president is not even ever mentioned in the book However his type is Karr was married to a man who is described like the man Romney exhibits boring rigid structured proper competent born into wealth and seemingly void of personality which Karr isn t I as reader get glimpses of her personality open funny angry sad and mostly unstable and unsure ie a typical poet A poet who got lucky and turned her misfortune neglectful parentsparenting child sexual assault victim into gold and then attributes that to the hand of God and the program Alcohol Anonymous which to me adds another component to her personality that of weakness or very low self control In other words a typical addict The interesting uestion to me which she doesn t get into is why her and not her sister Karr takes the easy way out the hand of God is what is going on here on earth God s plan etc and so on and you I anyone is powerless irt control over our Self and our behavior Our only recourse is submission to God via prayer Without God and prayer we are all doomed This bothers meMary Karr in her own words became a serious alcoholic and pretty much used the fog of alcoholic stupor as a coping mechanism for what was a rotten life devoid of love and affection but was able to use her good looks and intelligence to pretty much get whatever she thought she wanted but and also lacked any real communicative skills of intimacy and self regard to get what she really wanted and lacked love self worth Not unlike many of us Karr wasis still a victim of her being neglected in childhood by an alcoholic mother and a dimdull father Which is not all that uncommon throughout the history of humans regardless of which parent is the dimwit and who is the alcoholic Sans a good enough beginning having your basic needs met including the emotional and psychological a person s health and well being suffer and conseuently other people and things you interact with will also suffer Money can make things easier eg Karr s husbandRomney but money doesn t necessarily make for a well adjusted human who at the least does no harm This all three of Karr s books is THAT story What bothers me is that Karr still doesn t get it and hides behind poetry albeit good and entertaining poetry She abuses metaphorFor example Like two shots from a nail gunLike a rattler under a rockLike a shot birdLike flower to sunbeamLike a prisonerLike a sueezed rubber dollLike fence picketsLike linked hot dogsLike a black box over the eyes of a porn starLike he d bring up a wart or goiter I ve secretly taken offLike a burglar with the house silverLike playing cards spread against the slate skyLike he s been stabbedLike a circus diver into a bucket of waterLike a horn trying to break throughLike a sick calf to be liberated from the cartLike he s being abductedLike a rabbit through chicken wireLike a nuclear blastLike a maggotLike four legged beasts reared backLike smoke siphoned up with a hoseLike a bird on a wireLike bullets from a Kelvar vestENOUGH I don t want to know WHAT IT is LIKE I want to know what she thinks and feels who she is and why she does what she does She avoids any real introspection and reflection and inuiry the things I want to knowI was married to an alcoholic not unlike Karr as she describes the behavior at its worst I was young and uneducated at the time and I divorced the girl and even with all the current technology have not been able to find her Last I saw her she was eight months pregnant not by me said she had uit drinking and said she was happy That was 34 years ago I am a huge aficionado of David Foster Wallace a writer genius and former lover of Karr s who killed himself before Lit was published Karr writes about their relationship a little They spent time together in AA and a half way house that Wallace writes extensively about in Infinite Jest I want to know what Karr thinks and feels about him and THAT Here s how she refers to WallaceSome kind of genius DavidBandana ed DavidBig footed DavidUber logical DavidPhilosohy DavidPonytailed DavidProdigy like DavidThen they have a fight and he leaves and that s the last we readers hear of him from her Surely she read Infinite Jest Its influence on her writing is apparent but she says nothing Surely she knew he hung himself but she says nothing Okay but she does tell about the fate subseuent deaths of two other only incidental recovery friends Seems to me she really is crazy Lit is like a submarine sandwich without any meat lots of tasty bread vegetables flavor and spice but no meat Karr says she s going to write a how to book about memoir After all she s famous and rich for her efforts I like Mary Karr teach people about writing and I assure you this If Karr were in my class I d allow her to write however she wanted I d encourage her to find her voice but I d also challenge her as to what exactly she was trying to say to speak clearly Prose and poetry are not the same I d suggest she forget about God and her mother and her son and money and fame I d suggest to Mary Karr she get a dog or a cat and tell them the story And to maybe even have a drink Who is Marry Karr Answer An angry and funny woman All her prayer and fame and money hasn t dealt with how angry she is To be fair neither has all the shrinking she s had She s made a fortune writing about her abuse and neglect Prayers answered she asserts I see her explanation as one of many possible ones and one that does not really do much for her or anybody else except those who profit from it established institutions She still has all that anger inside her which erupts from time to time and which could be seen as really really funny and turned into a fantastically hilarious stand up comedic routine eg The train scene Or a great novel It could be that Wallace wrote Infinite Jest to seduce her Her mother could have been a victim of past life bleed through See my essay Reincarnation Who knows What if she had done something different than she did irt her relationship with Wallace What might we be reading today What if they had worked things out But what do we get God s plan and prayer Here s a thought Child neglect and the sexual abuse of a child is a really really bad thing that some children don t get over And I m not buying it as part of God s plan or the Devil s work and that the only remedy is to be saved via God s love No matter how well Karr can write that s

CHARACTERS Lit By Mary Karr

Lit By Mary Karr

DOWNLOAD Í Lit By Mary Karr CHARACTERS Lit By Mary Karr Es pura vida«Iluminada» por la literatura iluminada por lo espiritual iluminada es decir intoxicada hasta perder la noción de realidad por el alcohol La pena y el sacrificio se convierten en humor y promesa de futuro; Karr demuestra en cada página ue está en verdad comprometida con la literatura como una forma de arte no sólo conmovedora sino también motivadora liberadora Si hay un libro ue pueda ayudarnos a comprender ué fuimos ué somos y ué seremos antes y después de atravesar algún desierto es éste emocionante como una resurrección. Warning craft review Karr employs or deploys a number of craft strategies and techniues that I examined in order to rip off for my own writing I whittled down the many to these few Prologues as context anchoring and or launching points for both writer and reader and how the prologues determine the economy of explanation throughout the book Management of present and past self narrators for story for suspense and other effects Cognitive entry points the deft turns of phrase Karr uses to access or to seem to access and thereby weave in memory Use of parenthetical statements as a device for interrogating her own memory calling bull shit on herself andor adding another layer of subjectivity With the prologues we encounter an open letter to Karr s son which answers the vital narrator uestions outlined by writer David Mura in a presentation I attended at the Stonecoast Residency Who To Whom When Why The reader is immediately oriented Perhaps just as important these prologues also locate the writer provide her with narrative marching orders If she should forget Karr s prologue can remind her of who is telling the story to whom when and why And as writers we do forget we get bogged down in minutiae or umpteen other concerns and forget the larger shape of our stories In the first prologue SIDE A NOW Karr launches the I into a place of intimacy closeness truth no bullshit tenderness and regret she s writing to her son and as a result the narrator s calibrations are finely tuned in the way that only family can hear them fully And yet the reader is not left outside because Karr knows that as Joyce observed the universal is rendered in the particular or in this case a universal pain is rendered in Karr s idiosyncratic voice Texas shit kicker cum Harvard poet We are invited eavesdroppers Contextualizing the book in this way as letter to son also forces Karr to write from a place of love and tenderness It forces a level of honesty beyond Karr s obvious honesty and snarkiness into emotional honesty that isn t clever or well spoken It is in these moments when I stop marveling at the writer and take in the human being for example while visiting the sober house the narrator finds herself confessing deep clich d fears For some reason my eyes well up and I find myself saying to women I just met I m afraid I m not a good mom 242 Writing the prologue to her son keeps the narrator accountable to this level of emotional honesty At a minimum it keeps the bar highAlso clarified by the prologue is the economy of explanation The audience for the prologue is an intimate and someone to whom she is making amends I don t know if anyone ever asked Karr if she thinks of Lit as a 9th step of sorts but I d be interested to hear her answer Answering the narrative uestions serve to clarify the story This is a story of redemption and self definition from mother to son and why and how the mother tells it is to free them both If ever Karr got unclear about who what when to whom and why she could just look at this line which I see as the underpinning refrain of the book Maybe by telling you my story you can better tell yours which is the only way to get home by which I mean to get free of us 6 Of course the book is her own journey to get free of her family story of her own alcoholism to get home I think all writing is about going home we go deeper inward to bring truth outwardI admired too the way Karr seamlessly threaded both her present and past narrative selves whether with a sentence or a paragraph or sometimes just a phrase She makes such a transition at the end of the second chapter right after her so called college interview in which being fondled is the price of admission We are in that scene and then we are out with a spry witted turn With his trembling and sweaty hand he cupped first one breast then the other saying By God they re real Such was the interview that landed me in a school far beyond my meager ualifications 32 Seemingly all at once we are firmly in the past moment then we are looking back on it and then even looking forward from it When she first meets Walt Karr manages well the tension that can be exploited with narrator The past narrative self doesn t know that he s a good guy but the present narrating self does My department collects strays he said Stop by my office tonight We ll see what we can find But during the day the prospect slid back and forth like a BB Why did he want to see me at night Leaving my library job I faced sparse snow on the ground scraped at by winds like straight razors 37 What menacing But Walt proves harmless Karr manipulates this tension freuently and by uick turns so as to keep the energy of the story up without seeming like a predatory narratorAnother example and one of my favorites comes when she and some other drunks are car pooling to an outside meeting and she suspects the driver is drunk This is known as a commitment in and around Boston meaning the group is committing itself to serve another group but when I first heard it I immediately thought commitment as in to be committedto a nuthouse She captures AA so wonderfully with such humor and depth and reverence I want to read it through once just for that As she steps into the car her present narrating self smells juniper a hallmark of gin but she talks herself out of her instincts Fumblingly he lights a cigarette and the present narrating self declares This I think is as drunk a motherfucker as I ve ever seen fixing to steer the car I m in As a kid I was trained to give the shitfaced room 230 They end up driving to the meeting hall with the reader still in suspense the reveal comes a few pages later the narrator was right when they find the drunk motherfucker passed out under a treeI ll make my last two observations uickly but I want to note them at least Karr maneuvers her thinking with either physical objects or with cognition itself as a tangible object wherein she holds the thing or thought in her hand her mind her gaze and uses it as a Chutes and Ladders esue entry point into some other thought memory scene or image Right off in the prologue she regards a videotape while thinking of her son s leaving So after you d gone I played it maybe for the first time all the way through It s a summer afternoon in a yellow kitchen we ve yet to remodel She drops us right into the scene She does it again in the next prologue by using the red camera eye as an entry point She uses a triangle of a book page Lorca a bit later on as a vehicle for thought for movement into memory It s a device of Nabokov s his inimitable madeleine cookie moment from Speak Memory and Karr uses it just as expertly as a mode of transporting the reader and as a pivot point for reflectionFinally I admired how Karr used a parenthetical third narrator I have been attempting this without being fully conscious of it in my own work particularly in managing information I learn later from third parties or from court documents It adds so much depth to Karr s already rich voice and it did so leanly in these seeming asides But the asides by virtue of their repetition begin to take on weight and because their function changes from true aside to longer note they begin to seem like highlighted grafts of language They begin to function as another lens of subjectivity which ultimately makes her narrator all the reliable One striking example comes as Karr sits prostrate before a toilet bowl having just checked herself into the bin It s characteristic Karr to be self conscious about such a moment and she is and further she acknowledges this self consciousness on the page in a sort of screenplay aside that appears in parentheses Vis vis God speaking to me I don t mean the voice of Charlton Heston playing Moses booming from on high but reversals of attitude so contrary to my typical thoughts so solidly true as to seem divinely external And uiet these thoughts are strong and uiet View it as some sane self or healthy ego taking charge if you like By checking in to the hospital I ve said in some deep way uncle or as they said in my old neighborhood calf rope referring to an animal hogtied in a rodeo arena I ve stopped figuring so hard and begun to wait sometimes with increasing hope to be shown 276 Photography and History in Colonial Southern Africa get
