The Glass Castle

To paraphrase an oft-repeated line of Tolstoy's, every unhappy family is unique in their own way. Jeannette Walls, a well-established gossip columnist, first for New York Mag, and later for MSNBC, wrote a memoir about her surprisingly wild (and dirt poor) upbringing, with her two sisters and brother being led by the nose by their brilliant, slightly unhinged alcoholic father, and their loving but self-involved artist mother, at a time when no one would have suspected such an accomplished urbanite would have come from such a hard-scrabble existence in rural West Virginia.

Tower: The good, the bad and the awful

On one level, The Dark Tower, the big-screen Stephen King adaptation released last week, should have been a gimme. It is based on a seven-book series by one of the world's most popular writers.
